Help for Children

Jersey Women’s Refuge employs a dedicated Child & Young Person (CYP) Support Worker who provides one to one emotional support or group support to children and young people affected by domestic abuse. Both boys and girls up to the age of 18 can access this service, regardless of whether they are staying at the Refuge or not. All support is free and confidential.

Children of all ages, may not have the language skills to express themselves, but they still have a voice. Expressive arts awaken a child’s imagination and creativity to help them to discover who they are and how to engage their senses. They also bring a sense of calm to the body and positively impact mindset, interpretation of surroundings and emotional state.
Putting their feelings into movement, a story or a drawing gives children a safe outlet for negative emotions through an enjoyable activity, which accelerates the healing and growth process. But creative therapy is not just for coping, it also has great effects on a child’s normal development.

Our CYP Support Worker will develop age appropriate tailor-made sessions with the child, learning their interests through talking and creative work to meet their needs. Sessions can incorporate meditation and relaxation exercises to develop the young person’s coping tools.

Domestic Violence is any form of physical, emotional, sexual or financial abuse which is used to gain power and control over the other person in an intimate relationship.

Women often say emotional abuse is worse than physical abuse as it leaves no visible scars, is difficult to prove and can be very damaging.

Children living with domestic violence can also suffer in a variety of ways; either by witnessing violence itself, by being used as emotional pawns or indirectly by the stress suffered by their mother.
