This is a new 5-week domestic abuse programme where children work in groups of up to 4. This small setting also provides each child with an opportunity for bespoke 1-2-1 work. Lighthouse Heroes will be held at the Lighthouse Centre for 2 hours a week during the school day.

Lighthouse Heroes’ aims include:

  • Supporting children to speak out about their domestic abuse experiences.
  • Helping children to identify positive and negative relationship behaviour.
  • Providing the children with a personal safety plan.
