Children & Young People
The service offers the opportunity to explore how domestic abuse has impacted on their lives and supports them along their pathway towards recovery.
Each child or young person is allocated a fully qualified Key Worker who will help them understand what domestic abuse is; how it has affected their lives and to help them achieve their aspirations - whilst ensuring their emotional and physical well being are protected. We want all our children and young people to reach their full potential as healthy, resilient individuals.
The Service offers:
- Integration into their new communities (schools, health care, community activities)
- One to One support
- Group Activities & Holiday Activities
- Access to relevant services to support their emotional and physical well being
This support allows children and young people to explore and resolve the issues they have in relation to their experience of domestic abuse in a safe and confidential environment. It is important that children and young people are given this opportunity to be listened to and believed by someone they trust as it is an essential part of the healing process.
Children & Young People do not have to be living in refuge to receive this service. They can be referred by a carer, school etc. or refer themselves – both Girls & Boys!!
