Growing Futures focuses on children and young people and finds new and better ways to keep them safe and help them recover.
Led by Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, it brings experts together – from health services, the police, Doncaster Council, the voluntary sector, schools and children’s centres – to develop a ground breaking new approach.
Growing Futures' new team of Domestic Abuse Navigators (DANs), are helping children and their families quickly find the support they need to stay safe and move on together – for good.
This video shows how Growing Futures works:
If you are working with Doncaster families needing support with domestic abuse, call the DAN's liaison line on 01302 734466 Monday to Friday between 10am and 2pm.
Growing Futures is:
- offering new and tailored therapies to help children recover from the emotional trauma and avoid repeating patterns of abuse in the future
- helping parents rebuild their lives, grow in confidence and avoid abusive relationships
- working with perpetrators to challenge their behaviour and address the long term impact it has on their lives
- challenging the acceptance that domestic abuse at home is normal – it’s not.
If you think a child is in immediate danger. Don’t delay – call the police on 999 straight away.
