Domestic Abuse Recovery and Support

Families impacted by Domestic Abuse will find support in Lewisham Children & Family Centres via a small range of group activities, aimed at supporting women and children. Our programmes  are delivered by our own staff alongside multi agency partners from Schools, Health and Social Care.

Our 2 main programmes are:

  • Freedom programme – a group for women who are at risk, have experienced or are experiencing Domestic Abuse.
  • Community Groups Programme – a therapeutic programme for women and their children who no longer reside with the perpetrator and are not in crisis, offered on a group or 1:1 basis

Alongside this there is a parent-led group for women who have completed the Freedom programme and would like to join other women to share their experiences and offer peer support, and access to employment support programmes and other help.

Programmes in Lewisham are free.

These programmes can also be delivered in other London Boroughs and in Kent.  For programme costs and/or further information, please email londonandkentsh@eyalliance.org.uk

If you would like to talk to someone about accessing one of these programmes or other support please contact us via our confidential email.
