Earlier today I spoke with Gaynor McKeown from the Domestic Abuse Support Unit (DASU) about the issue of Domestic Violence and abuse which sadly impacts on the lives of both men and women across the country.

With COVID-19 lockdown in place, there are people who feel trapped in abuse relationships and don't know where to turn.

DASU is on hand right across the North Wales area to advise help and ensure that victims quickly receive the help they need.
