All programmes are women only and are delivered by two female facilitators both of whom have many years experience in supporting women affected by domestic abuse.
There is no charge, and we only accept self referrals. For more information or to enrol please call 07868163103.
Freedom Programme – 11 week programme open to women 16+ who want to learn more about the reality of domestic abuse in relationships. Each session explores the abusive tactics, controlling behaviours and belief systems of the dominator and the effects on women’s health and well-being.
We do not undertake any work with perpetrators of domestic abuse.
Recovery Toolkit Programme – 12 week programme for those who are no longer at risk from the abuse, designed to assist you to build your confidence and self esteem and look at ways to develop positive lifestyle coping strategies.
You and Me, Mum – 10 week programme where you will have the opportunity to safely explore the impact domestic violence has had on you and your relationships with your children and explore key Protective Behaviour messages and strategies for keeping safe. The course focuses on self empowerment and mutual aid, recognising the central role of mothers in the protection and positive development of their children.
Information for agencies: Please note that we cannot call women on your behalf. Please pass on our details so that the woman can self refer, if she wishes to do so and, if it is safe to do so. Women’s safety is our priority and if the abuser is in the house when we call this will put them at further risk. Various Birmingham City Council children’s centres also deliver the Freedom Programme, we do not co-ordinate them or have access to all their details/criteria. Please either contact the children’s centre directly or call Birmingham City Council Family Information Advice Service on 0121 303 1888.
