Alternatives to Violence Project, Cymru

This organisation is part of the national Alternatives to Violence Britain charity, and works across Wales.  It works to reduce violence in homes, communities and prisons by supporting people in disadvantaged situations to manage personal conflicts and build healthier relationships.  It runs workshops, both in the community and in prison settings, which aim to equip people with practical and valuable life-skills, improved communication and self-awareness, so that they can avoid conflict without resorting to violence.

Allen Lane has awarded £10,750 to the Project in October 2016.  This grant is towards the role of a part-time development officer.  The funding will allow the worker to recruit volunteer facilitators to run further workshops, and strengthen the organisation and extend its work.
