Children Experiencing Domestic Abuse Recovery
Cedar is a unique way of working with children, young people and their mothers who have experienced domestic abuse. The Cedar programme takes place over 12 weeks with groups for children, young people and their mothers running in parallel. The groups provide an opportunity to explore the experiences, understanding and feelings with an emphasis on providing fun and creative activities that keep children engaged and interacting with each other. It is about creating a safe place for children and their mothers to help each other to find the best strategies to deal with their experiences and rebuild their lives. A key aim of the programme is to help mothers to support their children in their recovery.
