Caerphilly Women's Aid merges with Llamau
Llamau is delighted to announce that Caerphilly Women’s Aid has now become part of Llamau Women Services. Merger talks have been underway for a number of months and were finally concluded on 30 September.
Caerphilly Women’s Aid has a 33 year history of delivering services to women and children, and this will continue as strongly as ever with Llamau. Caerphilly Women’s Services, as they are now known, includes four refuges throughout the borough, accommodating four women and up to 16 children in each refuge. Within 12 months of the merger, it is anticipated that the borough will have a desperately needed 24 hour refuge.
The merger will allow the same high quality, professional services to women and children suffering from domestic abuse, and will offer a more effective infrastructure in which those services can develop.
Llamau’s Chief Executive, Frances Beecher said, “We are very happy to have joined forces with Caerphilly Women’s Aid. This development will ensure that the best services are available to vulnerable women and their families in the Caerphilly area, and that those services have the support they need to develop in the most appropriate way. I would like to welcome Caerphilly Women’s Aid staff into the Llamau family, and look forward to working with you all.”
