Giving the Gift of freedom

Yn rhoi Rhodd Rhyddid

Help Hafan Cymru – help change lives Hafan Cymru is about far more than housing – donations and contributions from our supporters are a vital part in helping to change people’s lives. More and more businesses, groups and individuals are backing our work. They want to help transform the future prospects of women, men and their children who are escaping from domestic violence and abuse. What’s more, they’re having fun at the same time. Taking part in events can help to raise everyone’s spirits, build up team working and offer a high profile in the local and national media. Last year, Hafan Cymru supported more than 1,000 adults and more than 1,200 children, not only to find secure homes but also with a range of services to tackle complex problems and offer new hope.

Helpwch Hafan Cymru – a newid bywydau Mae Hafan Cymru’n golygu llawer mwy na thai – mae rhoddion a chyfraniadau gan ein cefnogwyr yn rhan allweddol wrth helpu i newid bywydau pobl. Mae mwy a mwy o fusnesau, grwpiau ac unigolion yn cefnogi ein gwaith. Maen nhw eisiau helpu trawsnewid gobeithion menywod, dynion a’u plant sy’n dianc rhag trais domestig a cham-drin. Yn fwy na hynny, maen nhw’n cael hwyl yr un pryd. Mae cymryd rhan mewn gweithgareddau’n gallu codi ysbryd pawb, yn datblygu gwaith tîm ac yn dwyn sylw yn y cyfryngau lleol a chenedlaethol. Y llynedd, bu Hafan Cymru’n cefnogi mwy na 1,000 o oedolion a mwy na 1,200, nid yn unig i gael cartrefi diogel ond hefyd gydag amrywiaeth o

With offices across Wales, Hafan Cymru is helping people move on to live independent lives with services that range from housing to developing new skills, from work and education opportunities to personal development. As the cuts in public finances begin to bite, the demand for our services is greater than ever and so is our need for support. A sum of £6,000 can provide a whole year’s support for a woman or man and their children who are escaping from domestic abuse. This newsletter explains more about our work, shows how we are helping people and offers opportunities for support. It will be published twice a year to keep you in touch and to see exactly how you, our supporters, are helping to change lives.

Hafan Cymru and you

We can help you help us There are all kinds of ways to raise money for Hafan Cymru and have fun at the same time. We have a Fundraising Pack full of ideas and tips.

Such activities also help raise awareness and at least two people have been inspired to take part in other fundraising events in Hafan Cymru’s name. Hafan’s Fundraising Pack

There are several opportunities to follow in the footsteps of Wales’s most famous classical singer and raise money for Hafan Cymru. Last year, Katherine swopped her fine gowns for running gear to take part in the Swansea 10k fun run and managed to raise more

... and Stacey? Stacey was overjoyed to join Katherine Jenkins on last year’s Swansea 10k run to raise money for Hafan Cymru. There were many reasons for her delight – being able to run the distance was one, being able to thank Hafan Cymru was another. Stacey is one of the hundreds of women that Hafan Cymru has helped to rebuild their lives after domestic abuse.

... a Stacey? Roedd Stacey wrth ei bodd yn ymuno gyda Katherine Jenkins ar ras 10k bae Abertawe y llynedd i godi arian at Hafan Cymru.

Roedd yna lawer o resymau am hynny – ei bod wedi llwyddo i redeg mor bell, er enghraifft, a’r cyfle i ddiolch i Hafan Cymru. Stacey yw un o’r cannoedd o fenywod y mae Hafan Cymru wedi eu helpu i ailadeiladu’u bywydau ar ôl dioddef cam-drin domestig.

Having seen her family break up because of abuse when she was a small child, Stacey too ended up with an abusive and controlling partner.

Fundraising heroes Arwyr codi arian Making a day of it! Raising money can mean a day to remember for friends and family – as some of Hafan Cymru’s heroes have just shown. When Brother and sister, Ian Roberts and Jen Davies, ran in the Great Manchester 10k run, their mother, Julie Roberts, was there cheering them on in the rain with her two grandchildren in a buggy. Two of their friends, Philip

Truman and Iain Sear, had joined them to run too. In the London Marathon, Sherrie Evans was on hand with the camera as husband, Martyn, crossed Martyn Evans London Bridge and then the finishing line. He is the first to run the Marathon for Hafan Cymru and, as well as raising valuable funds, it was a great day, with thousands cheering him on.

Safe at last

– Michelle’s story After being abused for most of her adult life, Michelle is at last able to build a new future, thanks to Hafan Cymru. She is taking part in the Freedom Programme and has more confidence than ever before; Enough confidence to tell her story. When she was only 16 and already a single parent to twins, Michelle got caught in her first abusive relationship. Pregnant again, after violence and even rape, she escaped to a Woman’s Aid refuge. Her experiences and a fear that she couldn’t cope made her decide to have her new baby adopted. “That was a difficult time in my If you are life and still is,” she says. “But suffering from abuse knowing there is support out or would like to talk there from Hafan Cymru and confidentially to access other organisations is a great support, please comfort to me and people in contact: the same situation.” Michelle’s trials weren’t over. 01267 225555 Later she met another man, who seemed great at first but soon became controlling. “He was very sexually abusive, to such a degree that I feel it is too harsh to talk about it,” she explains. “I remained trapped in that relationship for five years until I finally snapped.” “Hafan Cymru have been excellent and, in doing the Freedom Programme, I now have more confidence than ever I thought I would have.” “Hafan Cymru are still there supporting me every step of the way and I take great comfort from that.” Listen to another personal story on Hafan Cymru’s website – a BBC radio interview about Josephine’s escape from domestic abuse.

Mae’n cymryd rhan yn Rhaglen Rhyddid gan ennill mwy o hyder nag erioed o’r blaen; Digon o hyder i ddweud ei stori ... Pan oedd hi’n ddim ond 16 oed ac eisoes yn fam sengl i ddau o efeilliaid, fe gafodd Michelle ei dal yn ei pherthynas greulon gyntaf. A hithau’n feichiog eto, ar ôl trais a hyd yn oed dreisio, fe lwyddodd i ddianc i un o lochesi Cymorth i Fenywod. Oherwydd ei phrofiad a’r ofn na fyddai’n ymdopi, fe roddodd ei babi newydd i’w fabwysiadu. “Roedd hwnnw’n amser anodd yn fy mywyd, ac mae’n anodd o hyd,” meddai. “Ond mae’n gysur i fi a phobl eraill fel fi i wybod bod yna gefnogaeth i’w chael gan Hafan Cymru a chyrff eraill .” Ond doedd problemau Michelle ddim ar ben. Yn ddiweddarach, fe gafodd bartner arall. Roedd yn edrych yn wych i ddechrau, cyn dechrau ei rheoli hi. “Roedd y cam-drin yn rhywiol mewn ffordd sy’n rhy eithafol a garw i fi siarad amdano,” meddai. “Ro’n i’n gaeth yn y berthynas honno am bum mlynedd, nes methu â chymryd rhagor.“ “Mae Hafan Cymru wedi bod yn ardderchog a, thrwy wneud Rhaglen Rhyddid, mae gyda fi fwy o hyder nag a ddychmygais ei gael erioed.” “Mae Hafan Cymru yno o hyd yn fy Os ydych yn nghefnogi ar bob cam o’r daith ac mae cael eich cam-drin hynny’n gysur mawr.” neu eisiau siarad yn gyfrinachol am sut i n Gwrandewch ar stori bersonol gael cefnogaeth, arall ar wefan Hafan Cymru cysylltwch â – cyfweliad radio gyda’r BBC am Josephine yn dianc rhag cam-drin 01267 225555 domestig.

The gift of freedom – in words Poetry workshops help to heal the wounds. A famous poet has been helping some of Hafan Cymru’s service users to put their feelings into words. All across Wales, poetry workshops have been helping them to express themselves and work through their emotions. “Poetry allows me to express my feelings and have

a sense of humour about my situation,” says Michelle Telford, who joined poet Patrick Jones in one of the workshops.

She wrote a poem wishing for an “easy life”, fighting back against the abuse she suffered from her former partner.

Helping Helen – to gain confidence and work How Hafan Cymru support women to gain training, jobs and confidence. Across Wales there are women taking up voluntary work and full-time jobs and returning to full or part time education who would have thought such a thing was impossible a short time ago. These are the women being helped by Hafan Cymru’s Moving On Project – there are all kinds of success stories showing how women who have suffered from domestic abuse have been supported to build new lives for themselves and their families. In 2010, the project helped 100 vulnerable women across Wales to move on. But Hafan Cymru hopes to do even more. “Eventually we would love to be able to offer this service to all our service

The programme offers a wide range of support – from basic skills to personal development, from work experience or volunteer placements to support for moving into education and training or finding and keeping a job. Hafan has a team of Employment Link Co-ordinators offering a complete package of support that can be tailored to meet the individual’s needs. Hafan Cymru are looking for Voluntary agencies, public bodies and private companies who can all offer practical help too, by offering placements and jobs for people like Helen who are keen to get into work.

Working with young people to dispel myths and help face the issues. One of Hafan Cymru’s flagship projects was nominated for two prestigious awards for its work in making young people aware of how they can guard against domestic abuse. The pioneering Spectrum Project received this recognition for High Sheriff Awards in both Gwynedd and Clwyd. Through most of Wales, Hafan Cymru is working in secondary schools, colleges and with youth organisations to make young people between 11 and 18 years old aware of domestic abuse – its causes, its effects and ways to stop it. The project is part funded by the Welsh Government but more financial support is needed urgently to carry out this vital work. So far, Spectrum has reached about 90,000 young people and about 8,500 adults.

Stori Helen Roedd Helen, wedi gorfod symud i fyw i ran arall o Gymru er mwyn dianc rhag cam-drin domestig. Yn awr, diolch i’r prosiect Symud Ymlaen, mae wedi gorffen 8 o gymwysterau Rhwydwaith y Coleg Agored ac wedi symud i addysg mwy ffurfiol. Cwblhaodd gwrs ar fentora troseddwyr ifanc ac mae bellach yn gwirfoddoli gydag asiantaeth gynghori ym maes cyffuriau ac alcohol.

Prosiect ieuenctid yn arwain y ffordd Gweithio gyda phobl ifanc i chwalu’r chwedlau a’u helpu i wynebu’r cwestiynau mawr. Mae un o brif brosiectau Hafan Cymru wedi cael dwy wobr bwysig am ei waith yn codi ymwybyddiaeth pobl ifanc o sut y gallan nhw warchod rhag cam-drin domestig. Llwyddodd y prosiect arloesol, Sbectrwm, i dderbyn cydnabyddiaeth yng Ngwobrau’r Uchel Siryf yng Ngwynedd a Chlwyd. Yn y rhan fwyaf o Gymru, mae Hafan Cymru’n gweithio mewn ysgolion uwchradd, colegau a gyda mudiadau ieuenctid i godi ymwybyddiaeth pobl ifanc rhwng 11 ac 18 oed o gam-drin domestig – yr achos, yr effaith a ffyrdd o’i rwystro. Mae’r prosiect yn cael arian gan Lywodraeth Cymru ond mae angen rhagor o gefnogaeth ar frys i wneud y gwaith allweddol yma. Ers y dechrau, mae Sbectrwm wedi cyrraedd tua 90,000 o bobl ifanc a thua 8,500 o oedolion.

Mae’r rhaglen yn cynnig amrywiaeth eang o gefnogaeth – o sgiliau sylfaenol i ddatblygiad personol, o sicrhau profiad gwaith neu leoliadau gwirfoddol i gael cefnogaeth i symud i fyd addysg a hyfforddiant neu gael a chadw swyddi. Mae gan Hafan dîm o Cydlynwyr Cyswllt Cyflogaeth yn cynnig pecyn cyflawn o gefnogaeth sy’n gallu cael ei deilwrio i gwrdd ag anghenion yr unigolyn. Gall asiantaethau gwirfoddol, cyrff cyhoeddus a chwmnïau preifat i gyd helpu hefyd, trwy gynnig lleoliadau a swyddi i bobl fel Helen sy’n awyddus i gael gwaith.
