Information For Schools, colleges and youth workers
We offer a range of services for schools within Blackburn and Darwen with the aims of
- Raising awareness of domestic abuse and the effects of domestic abuse
- Providing information about available support services
- Educating about non-violent strategies to conflict
- Educating about healthy relationships
We deliver assembly presentations, workshops and programmes of work, which can be tailored to the needs of individual organisations and students. Our work can include many issues related to domestic abuse for example forced marriage, gender, healthy relationships, body image and cyber safety.
We can also deliver our programmes of work within schools, which include Expect Respect, Changing Places, Young People’s Recovery Toolkit, Helping Hands and CRUSH.
Our staff have successfully completed the National PSHE CPD course and work hard to ensure that sessions are thought-provoking whilst also fun and sensitive.
We can also deliver staff training sessions about the effects that domestic abuse can have on children, identifying domestic abuse, supporting children and families who are affected by domestic abuse and how to access support services.
