Working with other agencies

We are committed to working in partnership with key statutory and voluntary agencies and are proud of the excellent working relationships we have developed over many years


Gwella is a collaborative partnership between three specialist domestic violence service providers based in South East Wales: Cyfannol Women’s Aid, Atal y Fro, and Newport Women’s Aid. It is the first step in delivering a co-ordinated response to the needs of families affected by domestic abuse in South East Wales.
The partnership aims to:
  • Ensure, regardless of location, that people have equitable access to, and a choice of, a diverse range of services that meet their needs
  • Safeguard gender-responsive domestic and sexual violence services in South East Wales
  • Be innovative and enterprising in funding specialist services within the region
  • Ensure South East Wales is recognised as a region of best practice for delivering gender-responsive services
  • Be recognised by commissioners and funders as a trusted supplier of best value, high quality services
  • Raise awareness of the Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act 2015.
