How can I help my children?

Talking to children about what’s happening can help them to feel less powerless, confused and angry. We have provided some advice to help you here.

Taking children with you to refuge

Most refuges have children’s support workers who will make your children feel safe and at home in the refuge, and almost all refuges will have other children staying there when you arrive.

Love Respect

We believe love shouldn’t feel bad, and that everyone has a right to be safe and happy.

Even if you never experience a harmful or abusive relationship, you should know what it’s about so that you can keep an eye on your friends or family members, and help them get help and advice.
