Threshold DAS, in partnership with Calan DVS, has collaborated to form the Pembrokeshire Domestic Abuse Service (DAS).
Threshold DAS and Calan DVS are two well-established specialist agencies that have 110+ years of combined experience in supporting victims and survivors of domestic abuse.
Pembrokeshire DAS is committed to empowering service users to exercise agency in their lives and choose/control the support they receive. The trauma-informed service will be led by the needs and wishes of victims/survivors whilst keeping safety and understanding of risk paramount.
The service will support victims, survivors, and perpetrators (community only) with varying levels of need (including those with higher and more complex needs).

Furthermore, in addition to the aforementioned services, Pembrokeshire DAS, as a partnership, will deliver a wide range of additional specialist DVA support services, programmes and interventions which will further support those accessing our accommodation and community support, these include:
