Rachel Williams

IDVA, advocate, campaigner, survivor of domestic abuse, Ambassador for The Freedom Programme, Pioneer for Safelives Patron for SEEdS Wales

Rachel was shot and severely injured in a physically violent shot-gun attack, in Newport, South Wales, which was an attempted murder through domestic abuse. Rachel lived in an environment of domestic abuse from aged 21 to 39, with her violent partner Darren Williams and their two sons. Rachel’s survival was national news at the time, given the serious nature of the attack. Over the last 7 years Rachel is now an advocate for victims of domestic abuse and violence and is working with Welsh and UK Government and the police. Rachel does not shy away from supporting others who have also suffered domestic abuse, or who are in on-going domestic abuse situations.

Rachel is also an author of her book “The Devil at Home”.
