Domestic abuse support group to buy 20 homes

Thrive Women’s Aid plans to purchase 20 properties as safe, move-on accommodation for domestic abuse survivors in Neath-Port Talbot, South Wales, after the Social and Sustainable Capita charity pledged a £2.7m social investment loan to the organisation.

The funding enables it to buy homes for the first time in its 42-year history and help meet increased demand for its services after the coronavirus pandemic.

“Owning properties gives us more control and allows us to bring support services together under one roof in a holistic way,” said Lucy Reynolds, chief executive of Thrive Women’s Aid, which currently runs 11 units.
