You don't need to keep your feelings to yourself and talking about it might help you to make sense of what you're experiencing. Finding someone who will take you seriously and listen to you can be a huge relief.
CWA are here to support children and young people just like you who have experienced domestic abuse and still live at home. In most cases our service is confidential.
What do we mean confidential? It is very important that you know, before you tell us anything that we will not share anything you tell us with anyone else EXCEPT when we think that you or another child or young person may have been harmed or may be at risk of being harmed. We will tell you more about this when you contact us.
This service is available from birth to the age of 15 and explores the ways in which experiencing domestic abuse has impacted your life. You will be offered one to one support to discuss your feelings, build your confidence, and understand your emotions. You do not have to be living in refuge to receive this service - you can be referred by your carer, your school or refer by yourself.
If you want to talk to us we can; meet with you in a safe place that suits you, talk to you on the phone and let you know about what other help is on offer
You could also get support from talking to a friend, member of your family or another adult you trust and feel comfortable with like a teacher or contact Childline on the number below:
