Horizons Programme

Offering Support to Victims of Domestic Abuse

Our Horizons Programme is a relatively new and innovative service funded by the National Lottery, Children in Need and the Harpur Trust.

We offer a bespoke package of support for women and their children who have been exposed to domestic abuse, parental substance misuse and/or parental mental ill health.

‘I was isolated before starting the women’s only group, but now I have made friends. I’m not on my own.’

WOMEN HAVE TOLD US

‘After completing the self-esteem workshop, I now have the confidence to start rebuilding our lives.’

WOMEN HAVE TOLD US

‘Since learning the effects of domestic abuse has had on my children – I now feel closer to my children.’
