As of this year, they have opened their first refuge accommodation for male victims of domestic abuse in Ceredigion. They strive to take on people from anywhere in the UK, travelling day or night or pick up those in need of their help and taking them to a safe place.Unfortunately their vehicle is soon to be taken off the road. Without it they will not be able to pick up families in need of rescue. The refuge centre in Ceredigion is in a rural location with little public transport links so a vehicle is a necessity.What's needed? funds to purchase a vehicle for transporting families or individuals in need.Follow this project on neighbourly
