BBC Children in Need
We receive funding from BBC Children in Need for our Mentoring project, which supports boys aged 5-16 who have experienced domestic abuse. The aim is to help them with behavioural challenges and managing feelings they might be experiencing.
The National Lottery Community Fund
The National Lottery Community Fund funds Cyfannol’s Assertive Outreach project and our Horizon Sexual Violence Services, as well as providing funding support via the Covid-19 Gwent Domestic Abuse Response. Cyfannol is also in receipt of funding from the Community Fund to enhance its digital capabilities through a 4-year digital transformation project.
Housing Support Grants
Cyfannol’s domestic abuse support services across Blaenau Gwent, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen are largely funded by the Welsh Government’s Housing Support Grant, via the respective local authorities. These services include refuge accommodation, floating support, crisis intervention and groupwork.
Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent provides funding towards the Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVA) and counselling services, which form part of Cyfannol Women’s Aid’s Horizon Sexual Violence Services. They also fund a 16-24 specialist worker within the Assertive Outreach team and have supported the development of a drop-in provision for women being exploited within Newport.
