2014 – Launch of Restored

2014 saw a big review of all our services.  National and international research showed us that a holistic approach to wellbeing for survivors and for families caught in violent family dynamics was and is essential. It also showed that any in depth therapeutic work is not successful within brief intervention timescales, and indeed wastes resources and diminishes hope as repeat victimisation causes further traumatisation.

This research led to the development of The Restored Programme, a holistic, person-centred, recovery programme that empowers victims of domestic violence and abuse to develop confidence, resilience and independence. This overarching programme is highly individualised, working with women and children’s identified needs we provide the Independent Development Plan that enables them to live the lives they choose.

Launch of Training Services…

2014 included development of our Training Services for professionals, volunteers and communities.  Over the years we have invested in developing our training programme, ensuring that all our training stays up to date and relevant.  Our trainers have, between them, over 40 years of experience in women’s work and domestic abuse.
