We provide support for children and young people living in Pendle or Rossendale who have experienced or witnessed domestic abuse

We understand that as a parent you want to protect your child from harm, and that children are often affected by domestic abuse happening within the home, even if they are not being physically harmed. Children will often see or hear the arguments, they might see or hear the violence, and they will know if you or your partner are scared or upset. This can have a lasting impact on a child even after the abuse has ended. For example, it might affect your child’s success and behaviour at school, their ability to form friendships and relationships, and their self-confidence and self-worth.

The Lookout can support children and young people who:

  • Are aged 5 – 18 years
  • Live in Pendle or Rossendale
  • Have been exposed to abuse within their family
  • Have experienced abuse in their own relationship (whether this is still happening or has now stopped)
  • Are at risk of experiencing family and/or relationship violence

We also have an adult support service, PDVI which can help you if you are experiencing domestic abuse.

The Lookout uses various therapeutic tools to support children and young people through their individual healing processes. All support is age appropriate and is tailored to the individual needs of each young person.
