Answering your questions

Children's questions

What is Domestic Abuse?

Domestic abuse can be hitting, shouting, kicking, punching, spitting, swearing and anything that causes you to be scared. It happens a lot in your home where no one can see or hear and it can be between two adults or adults and children and you can be told not to tell anyone about it.

Who do you help?

We help all ages up to 18 years old.

How do we contact you?

You can phone, text, email, or just come in and see us.

What happens when we get there?

A worker will come and speak to you and your mum or carer to see how you are doing and tell you about what we can do to help. You can then ask any questions.

Will the workers tell anyone what I say?

Only if we think that you are in danger.

What kind of things will we do with our worker?

For the first while it’s about getting to know your worker and them getting to know you. Then you can tell a story or draw about your worries, sometimes with just your worker and sometimes in a group of other children like you if you want to.

What about my mum?

Your worker will speak with your mum to let her know how you are if you want us to. Your mum can also get help here too.
