What to Expect
Reaching out for the first time can be overwhelming and scary for some - to make it easier, here is what you can expect on your journey:
Support Groups Include
Victim Survivor Forum
We run a victim survivor forum to ensure that service delivery is led by the beneficiaries ensuring that their voices are heard regarding what's working and what isn't. We look at what needs to change, not only with our services but partner agencies, the wider community and all strategic responses to domestic abuse within our community.
The Gateway Programme
7-week domestic abuse programme
The Gateway Programme covers every step of your journey from beliefs and attitudes, the cycle of control, parenting and children, safety planning, coping strategies and moving forward. This programme is a key aspect that covers the impact of beliefs and attitudes on behaviours and how these can be formed within a domestic abuse relationship and looks how these can be changed to facilitate moving forward.
You and Me, Mum
10-week course designed for mothers with children
The programme looks at the impact of domestic abuse on parenting style, and the challenging behaviours children can present. This programme can aid in the use of simple coping skills in order to assist you on your journey to recovery. Clients will learn how to develop effective communication skills with their children and to understand how to promote a healthy relationship with themselves and their children.
6-week educational programme
This programme is centred on improving emotional well-being and coping strategies. On a journey through self-discovery this programme aims to redeem the self-love by controlling the inner critic and improve self-confidence through the power of thought during the detailed 2-hour sessions.
