Young people affected by Domestic Violence

We have several services to support young people aged 4-16 years that have been affected by, or live in a domestic abuse household.

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 welcome referrals for children whose parents are already supported by RCT, but also for young people who professionals are worried about.  The support can be tailored to the individual needs.
