What We Offer
Each child and young person is supported by their own friendly and experienced key worker who will maintain regular contact and provide support sessions.
We support all children and young people whether living in refuge with their mother/carer, moving out of refuge with their mother/carer or still living in their own homes/elsewhere.
Named key workers will build relationships with children and young people to cover more in-depth issues. The aim of one-to-one support is to enable the child or young person to become resilient, happy and confident, and able to learn and achieve.
Group work programmes provide fun and supportive sessions for children between 5 and 18, to address particular issues related to domestic abuse. The sessions offer time and space to socialise with peers in similar situations and create a sense of responsibility and inclusion.
We can liaise with other agencies on behalf of children and young people. By building open and honest relationships with children and young people, we can look for appropriate support to meet their needs.
We can support mothers/carers to re-establish relationships and boundaries with their children and offer opportunities for siblings to foster healthier relationships.
During the school holidays, we can continue to support children and young people with one-to-one sessions, where it is safe and appropriate to do so.
