Domestic abuse recovery programme

Children Experiencing Domestic Abuse Recovery (CEDAR) is an innovative project for children and young people who may be experiencing difficulties as a consequence of domestic abuse. 

It provides a therapeutic 12 week group work programme for children aged from 4-16 years old, alongside a group work programme for affected mothers.

Make a referral

CEDAR referrals are accepted all year round, with groups running February to May and September to December each year.

We welcome self-referrals from mothers who feels they are ready, along with their children, to work on recovering from their experiences. Referrals are also accepted from anyone who is working with a family, who have a shared memory of domestic abuse and who would be keen to engage with the programme.
