The Restored Programme
Restored is an intensive, time-focussed, structured rehabilitation and recovery programme for survivors of domestic abuse who are seeking change. It equips women and children to move on to freedom and restoration.
Restored aims to:
- Offer a secure setting (residential and/or centre based) that provides the opportunity for a sense of family.
- Help women, children and young people to gain a sense of healthy family and build resilience and ability to resist abuse.
- Support, protect and empower survivors of all ages to become independent and maintain long term freedom from abusive relationships.
- Celebrate achievements and successes with women and their families.
- Share our expertise and success to contribute to the development of ‘best practice’ in the field of Domestic Abuse.
It involves a range of therapeutic and educational interventions, leading to recovery, empowerment and lasting change for each family member.
WHO IS THE RESTORED PROGRAMME FOR?
The programme is designed to support women (both those with and without children) who have survived domestic abuse, and want to recover and build resilience and the capacity to maintain a safe and healthy lifestyle. It is inclusive of those for whom lasting change is particularly difficult due to long term abuse or other complex issues.
WHAT IS THE CRITERIA FOR THOSE ACCESSING THE PROGRAMME?
Participants need to be survivors of domestic abuse, seeking long term change, and be willing to commit to a programme of individually targeted interventions. A full needs and risk assessment will be undertaken.
WHERE WILL THIS BE DELIVERED?
The Restored programme may be accessed within a safe residential setting (refuge), or at our community based centre for those who are living in their own homes in reach of central Northampton, and do not have the need for secure accommodation.
