Newport Women’s Aid

Domestic abuse is a crime. It is not your fault and you are not alone.
1 in 4 women will experience domestic abuse in their life.

Introduction

Newport Women's Aid was established in September 1975. It is an organisation run by women, serving women in the community, who are suffering from domestic abuse. We now have two refuges in Newport, we also have outreach and aftercare workers that support women in the community. Additionally, we run a number of programmes which empower women in making decisions in their life.

Domestic abuse is defined as:













“any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass, but is not limited to”:

·  psychological
·  physical
·  sexual
·  financial
·  emotional

Freeing families from abuse

Domestic abuse essentially involves the misuse of power and exercise of control by one person over another with whom there is or has been a close relationship.
