On admission to refuge, our workers will offer you emotional and practical support. Once you have settled into your flat, we will work with you to identify your needs and develop a support plan to address these.
Children & Young People –
Coming to refuge can feel daunting, especially if you have children. We have two dedicated workers who will assist you with any practical issues you may be struggling with. Our workers also provide specialist domestic abuse support that helps children and young people overcome trauma.
We have a dedicated playroom which is well-resourced with various age-appropriate toys and activities to enable your children to escape from their worries.
We provide children and young people the same confidentiality as women, providing a safe space to explore and process their feelings. However, this space is provided within the limits of Child Protection – we make it clear to all children and young people what this means.
