Emergency Services Family Fun Day Success


Emergency Services Family Fun Day Success

The Domestic Abuse One Stop Shop – Neath Port Talbot offers free advice, information and support from a range of agencies under one roof to help anybody who is, or has been affected by domestic abuse.

On Saturday 24th June the Domestic Abuse One Stop Shop – Neath Port Talbot attended an Emergency Services Family Fun Day in Victoria Gardens organised by South Wales Police. PTAWA is a key member of the Partnership that run this service alongside Calan DVS, Neath Port Talbot CBC and Hafan Cymru. A display board was set up that had been put together by one of our newly instated volunteers and had a range of literature available for the public, providing details of the services offered by the One Stop Shop and its associated partners.

The weather was fine and the park was full of people enjoying the activities that the emergency services had provided, including mountain rescue ‘practice’, resuscitation and a police dog show. Needless to say the day was a noisy one, with blue flashing lights and sirens being activated by tiny people in fire-fighting outfits and police hats and live music in the bandstand.

As people wandered past the One Stop Shop display several stopped to read the literature and a few picked up some of the flyers. The following week we were approached by a lady who told us that the information provided that day had clarified her own situation and she is now receiving legal help and has been referred to the next Freedom programme. This is a fantastic example of how visibility in the Community spreads the message that support is out there for anyone experiencing Domestic Abuse.

Referrals for any of our services may be made directly to Port Talbot and Afan Women’s Aid or via the One Stop Shop.

No appointment required; you can simply turn up and speak with a specialist support worker.
