Youth services

We aim to provide a safe, friendly and non-blaming environment to help young people understand and explore the impact of violence and/or abuse in their lives. We also provide programmes for youth who are having difficulties managing their anger without becoming violent and/or abusive themselves.

For Young people aged 12 to 18 years (parents or caregivers are also encouraged to participate).

How ChangeAbility offers the following programmes:

Break Free – a safety programme for young people who are protected under a Protection Order through the family court.

Building respectful relationships – a programme that provides the skills to manage anger and other difficult emotions. Participants learn new interpersonal skills and self-management techniques to help them build healthy relationships.

When Group and individual programmes are available – we’ll talk through your options at an initial assessment meeting.
