Funded by Children in Need we provide a unique programme of support specifically working with domestic abuse in the home. Linking with schools we ensure our interventions are best placed to address need and prevent long term psychological damage.
Our Happier Children’s Programme offers young people aged 4 – 18 who have been affected by Domestic Abuse with a safe space to reflect, be in the moment and build on skills to grow positive self-development supporting the key effects young people face from the impact of Domestic Abuse.
We offer a weekly session that lasts up to 1 hour for a period of 12 weeks, providing a person-centred approach by tailoring each person’s programme from a library of creative therapeutic based play activities. Sessions can be extended depending on need, young people are reviewed 6 weekly.
We have delivered activities, services and interventions we know are most impactful and that participants tell us they enjoy most.
We pride ourselves on thinking outside of the box to build rapport between the young people and supporting agencies as well as providing therapeutic skills and tools during fun and creative focused activities.
Sessions have offered a range of strategies and tools to aid children and young people to achieve and improve whilst always having an element of fun in every session.
Our aim is to help children and young people come to terms with their experiences and to develop positive lifestyle and coping strategies. We provide a range of intense 1:1 mentoring, associated group work and fun recreational activities to help us to achieve our aims.
We are currently working in 3 primary school settings, have a youth group for 4-11years and a youth group for 11-16 all focusing on exploration of emotion through play and expressive therapies.
We hold various group sessions in the school holidays for children and young people who are involved with RCT or have a parent accessing one of our programmes.
