We want to support young people affected by domestic abuse, to help them become aware of their own behaviours and form positive relationships with others.
This programme supports young people who are displaying unhealthy behaviours in their relationships with others and themselves.
How we help:
We have over 10 years experience delivering programmes, projects and services that aim to reduce domestic abuse.
This means that we've seen first hand that domestic abuse can impact young people in a variety of ways. One way in which this can affect young people is that from experiencing or witnessing domestic abuse, they may start to struggle with their behaviours in their own relationships and with their sense of self. If as a result of their experiences they are engaging in harmful behaviour towards friends, siblings, partners or people they are dating, they need careful and considered support to address this.
This is where we come in. This programme aims to provide them with support from a professional who can help them to develop healthy relationships. Our team are caring, non-judgemental and will work with them to become aware of their behaviours, understand them and learn how to form positive relationships with others.
Please note: Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the programme is currently running online.
Young people who access this service will:
