CEDAR (Children Experiencing Domestic Abuse Recovery)

West Dunbartonshire CEDAR Project is now located within the WDC Offices in Clydebank

Telephone: 0141 562 8870

CEDAR (Children Experiencing Domestic Abuse Recovery) is a new 12 week group work programme for Mothers and Children who have experienced domestic abuse and are in recovery. This is currently being piloted within West Dunbartonshire for Mothers and Children aged 4-16 years old by the Violence Against Women Partnership.
CEDAR is a therapeutic voluntary group-work programme which seeks to increase Mother’s understanding of domestic abuse and the impact on their children.

  • Mother/child relationships are strengthened.
  • Mother’s know how to keep children safe and have support.
  • CEDAR also gives children a greater knowledge of safe behaviour and the ability to manage their emotions and actions in response to domestic abuse.

We are currently looking for Mums and Children who are interested in participating in a CEDAR group and would very much appreciate your help. It is important that:

  • Mums and children are interested and have given consent for a referral to be made as CEDAR is a voluntary programme.
  • That mums and children are not at a point of crisis and the perpetrator is no longer living within the family home.
  • Children and young people between 4- 16 years old.
