I am proud to present our Impact Report for 2016/17.
Last year we supported in excess of 500 women, children and families to survive through domestic abuse in Carmarthen and the wider district. We did this through a wide range of services, including our refuge, drop-in service, support workers, counselling sessions and confidential helpline.
A difficult economic environment continues to place a struggle on us to find funding in the context of ever-increasing demand for our services. The key question remains:
‘How will Carmarthen Domestic Abuse Services (CDAS) change the lives of those who have experienced domestic abuse for the better?’ This report seeks to answer that question.
2018 sees CDAS separating from Hafan Cymru and forging partnerships with a range of organisations to provide support to victims and their families, both in crisis and as they rebuild their lives.
I would like to thank the staff for their commitment to the organisation through a period of significant change and the trustee board, who have steered the organisation with diligence and commitment.
