We run Freedom Programmes for women who are or have been affected by Domestic Abuse. The Aim is to help them to make sense of and understand what has happened to them. The facilitators are wonderful and will give lots of support and practical help to the women who attend. The Freedom Programme also describes in detail how children are affected by being exposed to this kind of abuse and very importantly how their lives are improved when the abuse is removed.
While doing this course women may begin to realise how very abusive their current/recent partner actually is/was.
The course will enable women to recognise different forms of abuse and how they may be affected by it. Increasing levels of understanding may mean that women are able to recognise early warning signs of abuse.
We hope that women attending the course will learn to make informed decisions about future partners. The freedom programme also describes in detail how children are affected by being exposed to Domestic Abuse and how lives can be improved when the abuse is removed.
