Information about Acorns:
Acorns supports children, young people and families affected by domestic violence and abuse
Acorns was founded in 1999 as it was identified that there was a gap in services that provided specialist support to families whose lives had been impacted by domestic abuse.
A model of therapeutic one to one support was developed in response to the views of children young people and their families. Acorns was to become a place where children and their families could take ownership, feel safe, feel important and be part of their own recovery.
Over the years we have learned so much from the children and families we have worked with and we have developed as an organisation in areas such as outreach work with children and young people and advice and support work with parents and carers.
Acorns hopes to continue what it started…offering children, young people and their families a safe space to recover and nurture important relationships.
