Funded by Families First
Children are profoundly affected by domestic abuse; they may exhibit aggressive behaviour, bedwetting, loss of self-esteem and disruption to education among a range of other effects. We can help!
Our Community child worker provides support to children and families in the community effected by domestic abuse as part of the county DASH scheme ( Domestic Abuse Stop’s Here).
The Child worker offers one-to-one sessions, group work, play sessions, liaison with schools, activities, outings and help with parenting issues.
New games, iPads, specialist puppets and toys aid communication with children, increase confidence, improving emotional health and encouraging children to express themselves and have fun.
