Our domestic abuse team provides expert support to survivors of domestic abuse through delivery of programmes and groups for adults, children and young people who are affected by domestic abuse. Our domestic abuse workers can also offer 1 to 1 advice and we work closely with our PIPPA partners, offering an advice line.
Pattern Changing – provides structured group work over 12 weeks for women who have experienced domestic abuse with the aim of rebuilding their strength and resilience.
Parenting – we offer a range of programmes for parents who experienced abuse or whose child has lived with parental domestic abuse. This includes ACE Recovery Toolkit for parents and You & Me Mum.
Bright Stars – a therapeutic space for any young person who has witnessed or directly experienced domestic abuse, providing creative ways to explore the impact of domestic abuse and how to move forward

Safe, Talk, Thrive
This project has been developed for Mothers and their children who have experienced domestic abuse, focussing on working through the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Recovery Toolkit.
This is a trauma-informed course, focusing on negative experiences endured during childhood. This is a 1-term, weekly programme and is particularly beneficial to children who have lived with parental domestic abuse and are struggling with their feelings, emotions or relationships after the abuse ends.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions in 2020/21 we are focusing our work with children aged 11 to 16 years.
We welcome interest from schools to deliver this evidence-based programme in your own settings or to facilitate effective referrals of children and families to our programme delivered from Yellow Door premises.
No Age For Abuse
No Age For Abuse is a project to reach and encourage older people subject to domestic abuse to seek help.
This initiative is driven by evidence that older people are the least likely age group to report abuse and for many their experience of abuse lasts far longer than younger people.
We know older people often see services like Yellow Door as a young person’s service – this is not the case.
1 in 6 people aged 60 years and older experienced some form of abuse in a community setting during the past year. We are raising awareness about how older people can be affected by domestic abuse, specifically the over 60s age group.
We are sharing messages on social media to ensure that over 60’s know that person centred advocacy support is available for them.
68% of over 60s are less likely to leave an abusive relationship. We can support service users whose current partners, ex-partners or family members are committing the domestic abuse.
