The TLC Kidz Project is a community coordinated response for children and mothers living with domestic violence and abuse. The TLC Kidz Project seeks to create a common vision and shared responsibility among services in supporting children who have experienced domestic abuse
The TLC Kidz Project was established to raise awareness of the impact of domestic violence on children, to provide a coordinated inter-agency response, to upskill professionals and to support children in their recovery.
At the core of this project, is an evidence-informed 12-week, psycho-educational, group programme is for children (aged 5 - 18 years) and their mothers recovering from domestic abuse. Child and mother groups run concurrently.
