These are designed to work with agencies supporting young people. These are delivered over a weekly basis from 5-10 weeks, for around 2 hours at a time.
We are also available to deliver a program called You, Me and Mum. This 10 week program is designed to create a non-judgemental, non-threatening environment for mothers. It is a time for women to safely explore the impact domestic abuse has had on their relationship with their children and young people. It is designed to acknowledge the strengths and coping skills of women and their children and promotes the ethos of empowerment and self-help.

Worst Kept Secret are able to facilitate these sessions which aim to assist participants in looking at ways to develop positive lifestyle coping strategies and explore issues around; self-esteem, the effects of abuse on children and on parenting skills, boundaries and trust, anger and conflict, setting goals and healthy relationships.
