Children's Support Service

Who is this service for?

Blaby’s children’s support service provides therapeutic support sessions and group work to children and young people aged 5-18 years old who live or attend school within Blaby District.

Support is for those children who have been impacted by domestic abuse, living in households where there has been issues around anti-social behaviour, or poor parental mental health. We also support children who are experiencing low level stress and anxiety.

It is important that children who access the service are no longer living with or witnessing domestic abuse.


Support sessions take place in a safe space in schools and other community venues allowing confidentiality whilst adhering to Child Protection policy.


The support is tailored to listening & understanding the child’s perspective.

Support offered:

  • Being an advocate and help their voice to be heard.
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Self-worth, self-esteem & confidence building
  • Understanding negative & positive behaviours
  • Coping mechanisms
  • Working with the parent to put plans in place
  • Multi-agency working to maximise support for the family

Healing Together Programme

A large part of the support we offer is the Healing Together Programme. This is a trauma informed programme that is offered on a one to one or group basis.  The programme has been carefully put together to help young people learn about how their body and brain can work together to help them feel safe and calm.

They will not be asked to talk about their experiences, unless they wish to do so. This is a programme to help young connect and learn how to keep their brain and body feeling safe.
