Following two successful conferences on financial abuse and coercive control, AEA Cymru is delighted to be holding our next conference in North Wales.
The conference will be focusing on how the criminal justice system responds to older victims of crimes from reporting crimes to investigation, referral to the Crown Prosecution Service, prosecuting offences and finally sentencing.
