Women’s Aid ABCLN CYGNET Project funded by Children in Need provides bespoke one to one support for children aged from 8-18 years old, who have experienced/witnessed domestic abuse or violence in the family home.

The child’s individual needs are identified through the completion of initial assessment and reviewed throughout the period of support, to ensure needs are being met. The three main areas for support are:

  • Increased confidence
  • Better able to cope with distress or trauma
  • Have healthier relationships

Other areas for support include understanding separation and loss, managing anger, understanding emotions, anxiety and stress and safety planning.
