Free advice for teenagers & children county wide


Children and Teens Advocates (County)

The Children and Teen Advocates who operate in the county, otherwise known as the CAT team work with children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse within Nottinghamshire County. We work in the Boroughs of Ashfield, Rushcliffe, Broxtowe, and Gedling.

The children we support have frequently seen traumatic scenes and witnessed physical violence and emotional and psychological harm. We support Children who have have gone through a range of experiences due to the abuse that happened within the home including providing evidence at court, being removed from home, seeing a parent imprisoned, struggling with child contact arrangements, bedwetting, nightmares, self-harming, lack of attainment and attendance at school and even suicidal ideation.

The CAT team support children to talk about their feelings and have their story listened to, to understand they are not to blame, to be taught about what a healthy relationship should maybe look like and how to keep safe. We work with children between 6-12 weeks depending on their support needs and situation. The support work can either be done as 1-1 support that takes place weekly up to an hour in a safe space such as school or within a therapeutic group setting.
