Embrace Child Victims of Crime changes lives.
We help children and young people who have suffered trauma after witnessing or being a victim of domestic violence, sexual abuse, neglect and other serious crime. Some are struggling to cope with the death of a parent lost through serious crime.
We help them rebuild their lives by providing a range of support services that are right for them.
S Specialist emotional support – counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy.
U Understanding their individual circumstances
P Practical help through Alfie’s Fund
P Providing opportunities for happy memories – theme park days out, short breaks
O On-line support via webchat, text, email, Instagram and Facebook
R Referrals from police, teachers, safeguarding professionals and families and children
T Toy bank – new toys for cash-strapped families to make smiles after sadness
Support where it is needed
Embrace provides four distinct areas of support for children, young people and family members..
We don’t believe any child needing specialist help should have to go on a waiting list.
We always carry out an initial assessment for counselling referrals and, where appropriate, will match those in need of help with specialist young people and family counsellors.
