Renfrewshire Recovery from Abuse and Trauma
We believe that childhood abuse should not be allowed to cloud the rest of a child's life.
Our local services help children to heal and their families to recover from abusive experiences. Our service in Renfrewshire works with children and young people between 5 to 18 years who have been affected by either domestic abuse or sexual abuse.
Children who have been betrayed need to learn to trust again. Our staff offer young people a safe environment in which to build a trusting relationship with their worker, through a range of of therapeutic supports including counselling skills, art, play and other forms of creative communication, such as role play, puppets and storytelling to help them understand and cope with their feelings.
We help children to make sense of their experiences and encourage them to develop trusting relationships with safe boundaries in the future.
