Developing resilience in children and young people living with domestic abuse.

Project Bambu is a new service that aims to provide tailored, specialist support to meet the holistic needs of children and young people impacted by domestic abuse in the home while working in a multi-agency approach. RISE and DVIP, a division of Richmond Fellowship (RF), are organisations with experience working with children and young people (CYP) across London. Between us, we work with over 3,000 individuals annually, including services such as Child to Parent Violence programmes, therapeutic services for CYP and programmes for those being abusive in their relationships (including CYP), with an essential integrated victim safety support service. SafeLives will provide expert advice and support

We work with children and young people between 11-24 who have been experiencing domestic abuse in the home. We will operate our services in 8 boroughs: Enfield, Haringey, Islington, Tower Hamlets, Croydon, Lambeth, Hounslow and Hammersmith & Fulham.

In this project, Richmond Fellowship will work with Individuals aged 11-15. They provide up to 20 sessions of Play Therapy, Resilience sessions and Child & Adolescent Parent Violence (CAPV) programme. Individuals aged 16-24 will be able to access the services provided by RISE:  Up to 8 individual trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) sessions, Child & Adolescent Parent Violence (CAPV) programme sessions focusing on Non-Violent Resistance techniques, as well as up to 8 Trauma-focused group-work and restorative family sessions.
