Through our SpotLight intervention, we aim to mitigate the poor health outcomes associated with childhood exposure to domestic abuse by providing five 1:1 individualised support sessions.
We use arts-based approaches such as mask work and improvisation and teach vital safety planning skills through our SpotLight DigiResource to equip children with lifesaving information, so they know what to do if someone they know is in immediate danger.
Violence in children’s lives can disrupt their schooling and harm the quality of their education. This can result in psychological barriers to learning, as well as disrupting prospects and pathways to employability.
We work alongside West Yorkshire Police, local schools, and social services to ensure children’s safety is a priority.
Before the SpotLight sessions commence, the project coordinator must have the following documents:
Completed Referral Form
Child Protection Plan or Child In Need Plan (contact details of relevant agency that can provide this)
Safety assessment taken by the child's social worker (if relevant)
Please download and complete a recent DASH RIC or send one via email. We will not accept any DASH RICS that were completed more than 6 weeks ago.
