Empowerment – Children’s Independent Domestic Violence Advisor (IDVA)
Empowerment provides specialised support to children and young people in the Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre area who have been affected by domestic abuse through the appointment of IDVA’s. This service offers a chance for individuals to talk about their experiences in a safe environment with one-to-one support, an opportunity to meet and support other individuals who have had similar experiences, and to take part in educational sessions around safety planning, confidence and self-esteem building, safe and unsafe relationships and domestic abuse.
For the benefit of younger children under 5 years, the service also facilitates the rebuilding of the relationship between the non-abusing parent and child through supporting the parent in re-learning how to interact with their children and to establish themselves as a positive parental role model
