Charity: Sefton Women's and Children's Aid
Sefton Women's and Children's Aid is committed to safeguarding women, young people and children. Our dedicated team supports them in surviving the impact of domestic abuse by giving free, practical and emotional help. Our team provides a professional, holistic service to more than 1,500 families each year. The service includes advocacy, advice, structured programmes of work, parenting support and therapeutic support on a one-to-on, family or group basis. Women are encouraged to develop emotional resilience, identify and manage risk, understand the impact domestic abuse may have upon themselves and their children and improve self-esteem. Our Children’s Caseworkers aim to help children explore wishes, worries and feelings in order to recover from their experiences of domestic abuse. Our residential support service (or refuge) accommodates up to three families at any one time.
