Horizon is a project by Cyfannol Women’s Aid, which is an independent local charity providing services and support throughout Torfaen, Monmouthshire and Blaenau Gwent to people experiencing Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence.
Horizon Sexual Violence Services are funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, the Ministry of Justice, The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, and the Community Foundation in Wales and The Henry Smith Charity, with additional project-based funding support from ROSA, the UK fund for women and girls.
We support anyone who has experienced sexual violence at any time in their lives. Our ISVA has received specialist training to support women, men, children, older people, and people experiencing multiple disadvantage, including mental health and substance misuse.
Adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse
For 80% of the people we work with, their abuse started in childhood. We understand the barriers individuals face when disclosing such traumatic events.
Intimate partner sexual violence
We have been supporting victims of intimate partner sexual violence for 40 years. We recognise that all abuse thrives on secrecy and that threats and bribes are often used to maintain compliance.
Through our SEASS project, we have a specialist knowledge and understanding of the barriers faced by adults and young people who are currently, or are at risk of, experiencing sexual or financial exploitation.
