Slide Domestic abuse group programmes GROUP PROGRAMMES Our survivors have told us that being a part
of a group showed them that leaving was
possible when they thought it wasn’t.

we understand that survivors are at different support stages.

we do our best to accommodate
this within our group-based offer.

At LDAS our group-based programmes are only delivered by qualified/ accredited staff.
Our group programmes may offer you the support you need.

A course that will make sense of the abuse you have experienced/are experiencing. It will reduce the shame and blame you maybe feeling. It will help you to start to heal. It will help you to move forward with your life. It will let you know you are not the only one.

Delivered over 12 weeks the programme is broken down into sections which will look at the behaviour and attitudes of the abuser and how this manifest and impacts your life.

recovery toolkit

The Recovery Toolkit uses a trauma-informed psycho educational model. This means that we focus on your strengths and skills and work with you to build and enhance these areas.

We believe that by giving individuals knowledge we enable them to better understand and deal with their previous experiences. Programme participants are given practical strategies to help them thrive in their daily lives by developing resilience, increasing hope and enabling recovery.

The Adult Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit is a 12-week programme that helps participants understand the impact of having experienced domestic abuse, explaining how they were prevented from leaving an abusive relationship and the thinking patterns they developed as a method of managing the risk which can hold them back from moving forward. The individual’s own strengths, resources and coping skills and resilience are reinforced contributing to their own health and wellness on a long-term basis.

bespoke programmes tailored for you

We additionally deliver bespoke programmes designed to meet the gaps that are not met within the above courses. 

*Covid responses and safe working practice can impact the approach we use to deliver group-based work. We have found that many women and girls preferred the online approach and as such we will continue to deliver this within our offer to provide choices and best outcomes to those we support.
