Who We Are
Cardiff Women’s Aid is a woman-led, feminist organization which exists to support women and end Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) in all its forms. For over 45 years, we have supported survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence, and all other forms of violence against women.
While each of our services has its own key aim, everything we do is interconnected, and our specialist team has the knowledge and skills to bring all the elements of our provisions together. A personal advocate is as comfortable discussing legal protection and housing options as she is using her skills to address trauma.
Why We Exist
Cardiff Women’s Aid exists to end both the act and aftermath of VAWG, to work towards as well as meeting survivors’ needs. Our work is comprehensive and we work alongside survivors to help them achieve independent lives free from abuse.
We understand violence against women as a product of our unequal society, which is why we work to transform society’s response to abuse through outreach, training, and advocacy.
Whether we work within schools, communities, with the media or other institutions, our aim is to shift the landscape. We want to move away from tolerating the violation of women and girls’ human rights, towards one in which women’s safety and gender equality is the norm.
We never stop working for the social change and justice that will eventually end violence against women and girls.
