Newport Women’s Aid merges into Cyfannol, enhancing support across Gwent

in Other Share this

We are delighted to announce that, as of today, Monday 18th November, Newport Women’s Aid has formally merged into Cyfannol Women’s Aid.

This merger brings together more than 80 years of collective experience in supporting individuals and families who have been affected by Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (VAWDASV). In total the charities supported more than 2000 people last year and, going forward, the merger will strengthen the provision of specialist services available to survivors in Gwent.

Combining the charities’ skills, resources and specialist knowledge cements Cyfannol Women’s Aid’s position as the leading provider of VAWDASV services in Gwent, with 36 refuge spaces and a wide range of services delivered within the community. Existing Newport-based projects will continue, delivering specialist support to families in which children have been affected by abuse, and working in partnership with Gwent Police to provide assertive outreach to victims of domestic violence.

The merged charities now have a combined workforce of more than 100 staff and volunteers, with increased opportunities for sharing expertise and building on existing successes to develop services. Newport’s VAWDASV support services will remain in their existing Stow Hill office, adding a Newport base alongside Cyfannol’s sites in Torfaen, Monmouthshire and Blaenau Gwent.

Helen Swain, CEO of Cyfannol Women’s Aid, said:

“This is an exciting time for the organisation and we are looking forward to fully integrating our services. Moving forward, our focus will be on ensuring high-quality service delivery, prioritising staff wellbeing and development, and continuing to empower people affected by VAWDASV to flourish in a life free from violence and abuse. I would like to thank all our staff and trustees for their hard work and commitment. Thank you also to our funders and partners who have supported this process.”
