Calan DVS is one of the largest domestic abuse charities in Wales and we are committed to working in partnership to end domestic violence and abuse. Our staff are passionate about what they do and deliver much needed services to support some of the most vulnerable people in society.
Our service was formed in 2012 as a result of a merger between Neath & Lliw Valley Women’s Aid and since 2012, other Women’s Aid organisations have also joined the group including Brecknock Women’s Aid, Bridgend Women’s Aid and Ammanford Women’s Aid.
COVID-19 - We are still here!
This pandemic is a scary time for so many, particularly for Victims of Domestic Abuse. At home shouldn’t mean at risk.
If you or someone you know is suffering from Domestic Abuse, isolation rules do not apply.
We are excited to release our first ever podcast. Calan’s first podcast entitled What next! is a survivor led podcast where Rachel Williams – Don’t Look Back talks about her experiences of domestic abuse, coercive control and the impacts.
During the podcast you will also hear from sector experts Gwendolyn Sterk from Welsh Women’s Aid and Joanne Hopkins from ACE Support Hub Cymru who talk about the importance of survivor voices and how survivors inform policy work, the SEEDS project and the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences.
The podcast is led by our interim CEO Michelle Whelan
