We work with children and young people, and their families, in a multi-agency approach to provide early intervention and specialist programmes.
We believe that every child and young person should be provided the support they need to live a safe and fulfilling life, protected from all forms of harm, including abuse, bullying, exploitation and violence. RISE is committed to protecting, fulfilling and promoting the rights of all children and young people involved in our work and receiving our interventions. Through our interventions, we aim to improve the wellbeing and safety of children and reduce the chance of them becoming involved in violence later in life.
Our services include providing tailored, specialist support to meet the holistic needs of children and young people (aged 11-24) who are impacted by domestic abuse in the home. This includes therapeutic interventions, including trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and trauma-focused group work and resilience sessions. We also deliver Child and Adolescent to Parent Violence (CAPV) programmes, working with the child, parent(s), siblings, schools, children’s social care and early intervention teams, and programmes for children and young people who recognise they are abusive in their relationships, helping them change their behaviour.
Through our Young People Forum, we place the voices of children and young people at the heart of our work, in order to design and shapes services for families impacted by domestic abuse in the future.
