Jersey Women’s Refuge employs a dedicated Child & Young Person 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.
Our dedicated Child & Young Person Support Worker provides free counselling for children who may be affected by domestic abuse. There is no waiting list and the service is confidential.
This course aims to help children between 5 and 11 years old understand the impact of domestic abuse on their lives. It is a five week course full of fun activities which promotes three key messages:
– We all have the right to feel safe all of the time
– There is nothing so small or so awful we can’t talk about it with someone
– Others have the right to feel safe with us.
The course increases children’s understanding of feeling safe and explores and promotes behaviours which will contribute to a safe environment.
Children will learn emotional awareness, safety planning skills and relaxation skills.
This program may also be offered to children on a one to one basis.
Please contact our Outreach team if you feel your child may benefit from this course or you would like further information.
