NewDAy

We support families in different circumstances. The support provided is varied and raises awareness about the damage domestic abuse does to children and young people, as well as offering useful ways to reduce its impact and exposure. With the help of professionals such as social workers, family therapists and teachers connected to you, we aim to offer you the opportunity to make changes to your life and help you to live free from abuse.

We understand that living with domestic abuse can be a frightening, lonely and isolating experience. Many families may feel ashamed or reluctant to talk with people about what is happening. We want all families to be able to seek support for anything that is happening in their homes which is harmful.

Domestic abuse can seriously harm children and young people. Witnessing domestic abuse is a form of abuse which can seriously impact on a child’s wellbeing and development. Children’s emotional and mental health can be significantly affected from growing up around domestic abuse.
