How can I help my children?

Talking to children about what’s happening can help them to feel less powerless, confused and angry. We have provided some advice to help you here.

Children and domestic abuse

Domestic abuse services offer specialist emotional and practical support for children and young people affected by domestic abuse.


Taking children with you to refuge

Most refuges have children’s support workers who will make your children feel safe and at home in the refuge, and almost all refuges will have other children staying there when you arrive.
