Carmarthenshire Domestic Abuse Support Organisations Join Forces
Hafan Cymru and Carmarthen Domestic Abuse Services (formerly Carmarthen Womens Aid) are delighted to announce a closer collaboration. Carmarthen Domestic Abuse Services is now a subsidiary of Hafan Cymru.
Challenging times require organisations to rethink both their partnerships and the way they work with others across a wide spectrum. Having considered options for the future of both organisations, Hafan Cymru and Carmarthen Domestic Abuse Services have decided to form a partnership with the aim of ensuring the sustainability and best quality of the services they provide.
Nikki Warrington, Director of Quality Assurance and Performance at Hafan Cymru said:
“Hafan Cymru has always been keen to work closely with others. We know this can provide the necessary added value to enable our service users to achieve their own potential and help us as an organisation strive further towards excellence. Hafan Cymru and Carmarthen Domestic Abuse Services will work closely together to tackle domestic abuse, homelessness, and worklessness in the county.”
The Manager of CDAS, Ruth Graham said:
“We are thrilled to be a part of this exciting move forward and it makes complete sense for the organisation and our service users to formalise our existing working relationship in this way. Our Service Users throughout Carmarthen will benefit from us being able to provide a seamless service when they turn to either organisation for support.”
Cathy Davies, Chief Executive of Hafan Cymru added:
“I am personally delighted as this closes a circle for me from my beginnings in domestic abuse services, running the Carmarthen refuge for Carmarthen Women’s Aid to now being able to work with them again in a new, collaborative way.”
