Domestic Abuse, Recovering Together Referrals

DART is for mums and primary school children aged 7 to 14 who have experienced domestic abuse.

Both mum and child need to feel safe enough to participate in DART, which means we can't work with families if they’re still living with the person who has been abusive.

How to get help from NSPCC services

Sometimes you may be referred to one of our services by someone who already helps you, like a midwife, social worker, teacher or children's centre worker. You can join some of our services yourself, simply by contacting us to see if a place is available.

If you think a service that is available in your area might help you and your family, get in touch to find out more.
