What We Do

Our Services

domestic violence/abuse


RISE Cardiff defines domestic violence/abuse as any incident or pattern of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality.

Although every situation is unique, there are common factors that link the experience of an abusive relationship. Acknowledging these factors is an important step in preventing and stopping the abuse.

sexual violence/abuse


Sexual violence is any unwanted sexual act or activity. There are many different kinds of sexual violence, including but not restricted to rape.

Sexual violence can be perpetrated by a complete stranger, or by someone known and even trusted, such as a friend, colleague, family member, partner or ex-partner.

Harmful practices


Harmful practices include so called 'honour' crimes.  Everyone can sometimes feel that they are unable to live their lives the way they want to because of reactions from friends and family. However if you are scared that your actions may lead to violence from your family and the community you may be experiencing so-called ‘honour based’ violence.

This behaviour includes forced marriage and female genital mutilation.

Violence against women


We  also support women with other issues that happen to them just because they are women.  Such as stalking and harassment or sexual exploitation.

Our services also support women who are trying to escape from the sex industry.
