We have specialist workers based in our refuge offering practical and emotional support to women and their children.

They ensure all children/young people have access to education, health services and community resources. We offer one to one support, group work and therapeutic sessions to enable children to discuss and explore issues surrounding domestic violence in a safe and friendly environment. We enable children and young people to express and understand their feelings, build confidence and self-esteem and to build links within the local community.

We also offer support to women to raise their awareness and understanding of their children’s experiences and impact of domestic abuse.

We support children and young people through talking, listening, play and creative activities. We also link closely with the children and young people’s domestic abuse support team to enable relationships to be built and for children to have ongoing support when they resettle in the community.
