Children and Young People (CYP)

We have a small, dedicated team, delivering trauma-informed interventions to assist the recovery of children from domestic abuse and raise awareness amongst the wider community. Our Children and Young People’s Team currently offers:

  • Group work with children aged 8 – 18yrs (The CYP Recovery Toolkit)
  • Healthy Relationship Education in Secondary Schools and colleges
  • Primary Schools Workshops – focused on protective behaviours & positive friendships
  • Advice and support for parents and professionals
  • Training on the impact of domestic abuse on children via Swindon
    Safeguarding Partnership.
  • 1 to 1 support for children living in The Swindon Refuge
  • Parenting support and family activities for refuge residents, building confidence, trust and communication.

I am a young person, what can I do?
ChildLine – 0800 1111 – This is a 24-hour telephone helpline for children and young people needing to talk. Calls are confidential and are free even from mobiles. Their website is www.childline.org.uk.

If you are worried for yourself or someone you know, please speak with an adult you trust; it may be someone at school or college, or an adult at a club you go to. There are people who will help you.
