About Cornwall Refuge Trust

“We offer support and advice, empowering victims and survivors of domestic abuse to create or maintain a safer and happier future. Within the refuges we have a Child and Family Support Worker who can offer emotional support to the children and young people who come to the refuge with their parent.

The Child and Family Support Team also provide support to parents and use play-based activities to work therapeutically with the children and to strengthen family relationships. They work with parents to help them to understand the impact and effects of domestic abuse on children and young people and how they can best support their own children.

WAVES is a confidential counselling and outreach service provided by specialist trained counsellors. If you have experienced any form of domestic violence /abuse or family violence, this service may be for you. By providing therapy and individual support for people, this project aims to enable people to make positive changes in their lives.

The WAVES project also aims to make its services available to anyone who does not usually have access to therapy; people on low incomes, young people, disabled people, women, men, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and LGBT+ Community.”
