Groups

Women’s Groups

We run regular groups for our service users who are interested in meeting other women who have had similar experiences of domestic abuse. The groups provide peer support and an opportunity to build trust, enhance collaboration, and to promote recovery and healing.

Each group has a focus or a theme and the activities will focus around this. For example our group in February had the theme of International Women’s Day and the women created artwork based around this.

 

CEDAR – 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.

It’s local council election day! Make your vote matter. If you see your local candidates at the polling station, ask if they have signed our #SurvivorPledge, and are committed to supporting us to end domestic abuse in the city. #LocalElections #EdinburghWomensAid https://t.co/q1L5y45Ff6
