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.

“This group was awesome. It’s so important for young women to feel safe and it was great that we could be real with each other.”
