Time4u talking therapies is delivered by Embrace Child Victims of Crime (CVoC), a national registered charity.

Time4u is a counselling and psychotherapy service for young people aged 13 – 18 years (and up to 24 years with additional needs) who have been affected by domestic abuse or sexual violence. This includes young people who have witnessed, or have been affected by, violence in their home.

Time4u offers the opportunity for young people to talk to someone who is trained to listen carefully and not judge. Sometimes it’s easier and helpful to talk with someone who doesn’t already know the young person or their family.

The therapist will listen to what is said and help the young person find ways to move forward – without telling them what to do.

Time4u is part of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Prevention and Intervention Project. It is funded by the Home Office’s Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Transformation Fund, in partnership with the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner, Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council.

We welcome referrals from all young people regardless of gender identity.


To be referred to the service, young people will be aged between 13 -18 years (up to 24 with additional needs) and:
  • have been a victim of, or witness to domestic abuse and/ or sexual violence

  • be safe from the offender

  • be able to make an informed choice about therapy and what it might offer them at this stage


From the 1st April 2019 will will be introducing a priority-only system for referrals into this service. We will only be accepting referrals that meet the criteria for this service only from the following pathways:

Once the referral is received Time4u staff will make contact with the parent/carers as soon as possible, usually within three working days.

An assessment will be arranged and carried out at a suitable location.

Following the assessment, if the young person wishes to embark on counselling, they will be matched with a therapist with the skills and experience to meet their needs.
