Diane Hunter and Isabella Stokes outline our Domestic Abuse, Recovering Together service, explaining why we’re working with partners to reach more families
Around 1 in 5 children have been exposed to domestic abuse – and it can have a devastating impact (Radford, 2011).
Following research which highlights the importance of non-abusive parents taking an active part in their child’s recovery from domestic abuse, we wanted to develop a service that helps children exposed to domestic abuse rebuild their lives (Humphreys, 2006).
Domestic Abuse, Recovering Together (DART) is the result - an innovative, evidence-based group programme for mothers and children.
Across 2 blog posts we’ll be sharing the findings from our evaluation of DART and explaining how and why we’ve been working with partner organisations to support more mums and children who are exposed to domestic abuse.
