Situation

While their mothers attend a support group the children meet independently in a safe space facilitated by qualified and experienced infant workers. Here appropriate play is offered to allow the children to express and explore the feelings thay have about their family life. If children grow up unable to express their feelings they are likely to fail in all aspects of life. Langauge is an early casualty when living with domestic abuse and this often leads to a disrupted education if the children enter school with sppech difficulties. We are passionate about enabling these very young children the oppportunity to work through these issues and begin to feel safe.
