Cedar Project Inverclyde

Cedar is an evidence-based, multi-agency initiative for children, young people (aged 4-16) and their mothers, with the key aim of helping mothers to understand the impact of domestic abuse upon children and to support children in their recovery. It is a therapeutic 12-week groupwork programme with groups for children, young people and their mothers.

The Cedar approach, framed through the eyes of children, directly addresses the impact of domestic abuse, empowering children and young people to build happier, safer futures.

Children 1st - Inverclyde recovery from abuse and trauma

Our service in Inverclyde works with children and young people between 5 and 18 years who have been affected by either domestic abuse or sexual abuse. Children who have been betrayed need to learn to trust again. Our staff offer young people a safe environment in which to build a trusting relationship with their worker, through a range of therapeutic supports including counselling skills, art, play and other forms of creative communication, such as role play, puppets and storytelling to help them understand and cope with their feelings.
