For the last several months, A2ndvoice have been approached to host workshops tackling violence and abuse amongst families with children and adults with Autism and other related conditions.  

Christian Funders approved the project which gives us the opportunity to target the church community. The taboos around Domestic Violence and Abuse within the church needs to be raised with support and sensitivity from those who have experienced abuse, but unable to sought for professional advice.

Following a successful Healthy Relationships Workshop held at the Cassandra Learning Centre (CLC), Norbury in July 2015 was well received.

CLC host a variety of events identifying and tackling abuse and violence amongst young people (males and females) and family support.

We will be looking at providing a platform for sessions for males who have experienced abuse or have been involved in SYV.  These workshops will be facilitated by CEO - Crying Sons Gwenton Sloley, CEO - Mixed Foundations Simon Morley and the Cassandra Learning Centre CEO Jennifer McDermott will focus on teenagers and families with many other service providers offering support, counselling and healthy relationship programs.

We will host drop in coffee mornings at locations in the Wandsworth and Lambeth Area, the workshops will be small and we expect at times to have parents and young people to attend.

Thanking you in advance and look forward to us tackling the silent voice around abuse from different perspectives.

Which will cover:-
• Emotional Abuse
• Sexual Abuse
• Physical Abuse
• Mental Abuse
• Racial Abuse
• Spiritual Abuse
• Verbal Abuse
• Substance Abuse

If you specialise in a specific area, please let us know as we would like to make sure that we are able to signpost individuals and families to the right service providers.

Look forward to us working together for 2016.
