Domestic Abuse

Are you the victim of Domestic Abuse? Do you need help, support or advice?

The Association is committed to provide support to victims of domestic abuse.

We will work in partnership with other agencies to provide practical and emotional support and ensure your home is safe.

The Association recognises the serious impact of domestic abuse to families and individuals and the high mortality rate of victims of domestic abuse. Whilst Mid- Wales Housing Association operates in areas of lower than average national crime statistics the Association recognises that domestic abuse does occur in the areas of Powys and Ceredigion.

There is help and support available from both the Association and other organisations.

Your Community Housing Officer can offer support, advice and work with you and other agencies to make sure you are safe.
