We are delighted to receive a grant award through Welsh Women’s Aid and Comic Relief Covid -19 Emergency Fund to increase our refuge staffing ahead of the opening of our new crisis accommodation due to launch in August. 

The new facility is additional to our existing crisis accommodation provision and was identified as a key area of need to proactively manage the increased demand for services and accommodation as lockdown restrictions reduce. 

 

We also wish to thank South Wales Police and Crime Commissioners Violence Against Women division for awarding funding to provide support for Children and Young People living in our refuges and the communities of RCT.

 

The new refuge is the result of a collaborative partnership between Women’s Aid RCT, RCTCBC Homelessness Commissioner and United Welsh Housing Association to effectively support families fleeing domestic violence following the impact of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions across the communities of RCT.
