Mums who have lived with an abusive partner can lose sight of their children's physical and emotional needs. And children can find it hard to talk to their mums about what has happened. They may start acting out the abusive, threatening or controlling behaviour they’ve witnessed.
Through Domestic Abuse, Recovering Together (DART), children and their mothers can talk to each other about domestic abuse, learn to communicate and rebuild their relationship. They can meet other mums and children who have lived through similar experiences, and share what they have learned.
We are now accepting referrals for the next group ages 10-12 year olds, cases will be accepted but initially closed to generate enough referrals and will be allocated in August 2017.
