Domestic violence service for Michael, age 8

Eleanor is a project worker at the Barnardo’s Oldham Domestic Abuse Service.

She works with children like Michael who are living with domestic violence, helping them stay safe and alleviating the long-term effects of domestic violence through counselling and family support services.

We work with children like Michael who have to deal with the daily reality of living in a violent home: they typically lack self-esteem, confidence, and struggle with making positive relationships. We gain their trust to help them realise that through Barnardo's, they have a safe person to talk to. We use interactive games and activities to teach how to stay safe at home and develop coping strategies in difficult situations.
