Domestic Abuse - Hafan Cymru has a number of initiatives in place to raise awareness of and tackle domestic abuse and is committed to the development of partnership services to move these initiatives forward.
- Hafan Cymru hosts several Local Authority Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs), providing advice, information and support to survivors of intimate partner violence living in the community..In partnership with the National Probation Service in Dyfed/Powys. View IDVA.
- Hafan Cymru also hosts the Independent Domestic Abuse Programme (IDAP), a programme which proves highly effective in challenging the perpetrators’ use of violence, aiming to change the behaviour which leads to it. We are the only non-probation organisation to be working in Wales as part of IDAP and we are very pleased to be able to assist this vital work which helps deliver one of the key themes of the Welsh National Domestic Abuse Strategy.
