Children & Young People
We can support children & young people affected by domestic abuse and we also have a prevention worker who works with groups of children in schools & group settings. Please see below for further details.
The self-help toolkit is a very interactive tool children and young people can use for support, educational and entertainment purposes. The booklet is split into different categories which are signposted by different page colours making it easy to find what you’re interested in. the toolkit is focused on health and well being to guide, give you new ideas for self-care with fun activities to do. This toolkit has been designed with the image of empowering and supporting young people now, as well as having a lasting positive impact in their future.
