New young people’s project set to launch across Mansfield and Ashfield

NIDAS (Nottinghamshire Independent Domestic Abuse Services) have been successful in applying to the Boots Charitable Trust and Children in Need to deliver a new project aimed at children and young people aged 12 to 25 years old who have been affected by a violent or abusive relationship.

Abusive incidents within a relationship can take many forms ranging from physical to emotional to online. Children and young people find themselves statistically at much greater risk because they do not have the lived experience to recognise when it’s happening as it can be very subtle and occur over a prolonged period of time.

 

Last year NIDAS supported 630 children and young people across Mansfield and Ashfield who had been exposed to some form of abusive behaviour by either their boyfriend/girlfriend, spouse, a family member, friend or acquaintance. This is part of their whole family approach, supporting everyone in the family unit to stay safe on their journey from crisis-to-recovery. A young person who accessed the family service last year said “I can now say what I need in a relationship as I am more confident and better able to recognise the signs of abuse should it happen again”.

NIDAS will be launching this new and exciting project at the end of July 2018 and have already been making contact with schools and colleges in the local area. They will work directly with children and young people on a 1-to-1 basis, providing emotional support and practical advice about healthy intimate and family relationships. They will also be offering drop-in sessions, group workshops and telephone support to anyone or any organisation locally that meets the eligibility criteria.

If you or anyone you know might benefit from chatting to us about a relationship, then please don’t hesitate in contacting us for more information. NIDAS are an independent, specialist, grassroots charity and all calls are treated with 100% confidentiality.
