We understand that the effects of domestic and sexual abuse do not usually stop after the events but often continue to affect personal and family life. The Family Support Worker can offer practical and emotional support for parents and carers of children and young people who attend Acorns.

This may include housing and benefits advice, support to attend solicitors or court, children's services meetings or medical appointments. Emotional support give a safe space to share thoughts and experiences and explore how domestic abuse has affected women, carers and children and can help towards feeling safer, healthier and more confident about the future.
