Recovery Support (CEDAR)

Recovery support is provided for women and their children who are out of immediate harm, focusing on the journey to process and understand the trauma of the domestic abuse they have experienced.

CEDAR (Children Experiencing Domestic Abuse Recovery) programme is a 10-12 week therapeutic and peer support group work programme for mothers and their children, aged 5-16 years, who have experienced domestic abuse:

  • Mothers and children have their own individual groups.
  • This supports mothers and children with their own recovery, as well as providing mothers with the tools to help support their children.
  • Groups run during school term-time.
