Who we are
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.
We cover a large and varied geographical area, providing services across Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot, South Powys and Ammanford (Carmarthenshire).
Our service model ranges from core domestic violence services for female victims including refuge, support in the community and crisis drop in services, support for children and young people exposed to domestic violence and abuse (DVA).
Calan delivers trauma informed family programmes which take a whole family approach and deliver a specific programme and community services for male victims.
It is a fundamental principle of Calan DVS that no person should be discriminated against by reason of race, religion, beliefs, national origin, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age, disability, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity, in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.
