Women's Aid Helps
Women’s Aid helps children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse in many ways.
Women’s Aid projects have children’s workers especially for children and young people. They can spend time with you. You can ask them any questions or speak to them about anything that is bothering you.

Listening to what you say
It can help to talk about what’s happening with someone you trust. Our workers can give a listening ear. They will not force you to talk about things you don’t want to, but they will try to help you say what you are feeling.
Talking can help. Watch the video.
Giving you and your mum a safe place to stay
We can give women, children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse a safe place in a refuge. This keeps your mum and you safe and away from the person who is being abusive.
What refuge is like. Watch the video.
Having some fun
Children and young people don’t always want to think about domestic abuse. We arrange fun activities and trips for children and young people. These can help take your mind off things and give you the chance to meet others going through the same things.
It can be difficult for children and young people to talk about domestic abuse. We will listen to you and believe what you say.
Domestic abuse can cause you to have a whole mixture of feelings. These can come out in different ways. We will not judge you because of how you feel or because of what has happened in your family.
Helping your mum
Domestic abuse affects women in lots of different ways. We can help your mum with things like housing and keeping safe.
