Due to Covid-19 the SUTDA20 Charity Ball has now been postponed until Saturday 25th September 2021
Nothing has changed other than the date!

This Gala dinner will enable the continuation of successful campaigning, awareness raising, supporting survivors to enable them to confidently move on from refuge and supported accommodation and the delivery of the Freedom Programme.

I hope you will still be able to support the event as your support really makes all of the above possible, thank you!


As this year’s SUTDA Charity Ball has be postponed I will be holding a ‘SUTDA21 – Taster’ via zoom.

This will take place on Saturday 26th September 2020 at 7pm where we will be joined by Terra Newell (Dirty John) & Nazir Afzal.

Both guests will give us a glimpse of what we can expect next year where they will join us as our after-dinner speakers.

There will also be entertainment along with other guest speakers.

Further details for the zoom event will be promoted in the coming weeks.
This event is only for those who have secured a ticket for SUTDA20 or for those who will secure a ticket for SUTDA21.

Thank you for your continued support

Life is precious but freedom is priceless

Following on from the first ever Survivor led conference in Wales which saw over 300 professionals and survivors in attendance, and the Inaugural year of Stand Up to Domestic Abuse day, Rachel Williams will be hosting a Gala Dinner.


The SUTDA Victorious Recognition awards are designed to celebrate achievement of a range of individuals who have made a positive impact to the lives of victims of domestic abuse and to those who are passionate about raising awareness and ending all forms of violence against women.

Table bookings & Sponsorship opportunities

In hosting this Gala dinner, Rachel wishes to continue the momentum of the successful campaigning and awareness raising into 2020 and beyond. In addition to this, funds from the Gala Dinner will contribute towards supporting survivors to enable them to confidently move on from refuge and supported accommodation.

We have already seen the impact from the proceeds of SUTDA19 where Rachel has donated over £1,000 to survivors leaving refuge and has booked to deliver her first Freedom Programme.

With funds raised from the Black Tie, Rachel will also build on her advocacy service through social media platforms where she has over 17,000 combined followers. The funds will also support her to continue the delivery of the Freedom Programme to women in South East Wales making it more accessible for victims.

Rachel will continue to work towards empowering victims of domestic abuse and violence to take control and support them to take the safe journey to freedom.
