My name is Lisa Winnett and I am a Blaenau Gwent County Borough Councillor. I fully support the excellent work and support that Phoenix Domestic Abuse give to victims, especially how their dedicated team of staff help people to better their lives through long term support. Many people do not realise the intervention work that Phoenix also carries out with young people who are showing signs of controlling and abusive behaviour, plus they also work with perpetrators to try and help to change a person’s abusive behaviour and stop them from abusing others in the future. I am more than happy to help and support Phoenix with the work that they do, as they do provide a lifesaving service to many people when they are at the lowest point of their lives due to abuse, their work is a much-valued service.
