Support for families with domestic abuse

Children, young people and families, who have experienced domestic abuse, can attend confidential courses to help them improve their wellbeing and lifestyle.

The Children and Family Wellbeing Service (CFWS) offer various groups to suit different ages and situations. They aim to educate, advise and encourage you to share your story and build your confidence.

Each group has its own eligibility criteria and depends on whether domestic abuse is a current or a past experience.

Attendance to any of these groups is completely confidential.


These groups allow participants to meet and work with others who have had similar experiences of domestic abuse.

Groups for children aged 8-16 years

Groups for parents and carers aged 16+

One-to-one support

We offer personal support to families and children to improve different aspects of their lifestyle, such as parenting skills, emotional and physical health and wellbeing, and behaviour management.
