Welcome to The Gap

The Gap Wales is a charity committed to serving the people of Newport, South Wales and the surrounding areas.


We try to find opportunities to “fill the gap” where existing services and charities are not able to meet the needs of members of our community.

The Sanctuary

Newport is currently home to about 450 asylum seekers and a larger number of refugees. Here at The Sanctuary we show care and concern in a practical  way by supporting people from refugee and asylum seeker communities. We do this by building friendships, by restoring a sense of belonging and community and by providing practical and emotional support.

Beacon Bereavement Support

Here at Beacon Bereavement Support we know what grief feels like. All our volunteers have suffered the loss of a loved one and have each travelled their own bereavement journey – through the pain, the heartache and the sometimes confusing emotions that bereavement brings.

If someone close to you has died, we’re here to help you on your journey.
