New refuge accommodation options

We are delighted to announce that Cyfannol’s choice of safe temporary refuge accommodation has expanded, allowing us to accommodate more individuals and families across Gwent.

Our goal is to meet individual needs wherever we can – whether you are a woman with a disability, need space for older children, have pets, or simply prefer to live on your own; these need not be barriers to accessing refuge support.

We now have a range of refuge options across Torfaen, Newport, Monmouthshire and Blaenau Gwent, including:

  • Our existing communal and self-contained single women’s and family refuges
  • A range of 1 and 2 bedroom self-contained flats for women with or without children
  • Small houses that can be used by women with larger families or shared by single women
  • A flat that’s also available to men fleeing domestic abuse or sexual violence

At a time when it may feel like there are additional barriers and fewer options, we hope this development will help to encourage anyone who is experiencing domestic abuse or sexual violence to seek support.
