The Freedom Project is unique in West Cumbria in providing a free holistic family approach, working with victims, perpetrators and children suffering from the trauma and effects of domestic and sexual abuse. Our main services are delivered through the Freedom Project, which consists of: • A Confidential Helpline offering practical and emotional support. This is the route to which many of our referrals are received and all signposting to other agencies and support services are made (such as housing, police and health etc) • one-to-one assessment of need where client and counsellor decide which counselling support service pathway (group sessions, one-to-one sessions or both) is most appropriate for themselves, and their family • one-to-one and individual counselling for victims, perpetrators and children/ young people • Volunteer befriending and support service (including pre counselling sessions- provided to clients on the waiting list that feel they need immediate support, attending courts, helping with transport) • a rolling programme of group sessions with adult victims/survivors; • a rolling programme of group sessions for children (primary age and under) • a rolling programme of group sessions for older children/young people (secondary age up to 18)
