About Us


At Port Talbot & Afan Women’s Aid (PTAWA) we believe everyone has the right to live in safety and have a future without fear.

Founded in 1979, PTAWA provides support to families who have been affected by Domestic Abuse, enabling them to rebuild their lives.

Although a member of Welsh Women’s Aid, PTAWA is an independent registered charity and company limited by guarantee. We are responsible for the maintenance of all our own income, whether from statutory or charitable bodies, or from donations.

We believe that Domestic Abuse is a gendered crime and that it is a part of the wider issue of violence against women. This is an equality and human rights issue i.e. violence against women is both a cause and a consequence of the legacy of women’s unequal position in society.



Our Vision is to create safe communities, free from domestic abuse where people and families can flourish and build successful independent lives.


To be an innovative and sustainable provider of excellent, good value domestic abuse services that drive prevention, provide interventions and enable progression.
