Through the Harbour programme, TDAS offer both intervention support services and prevention and educational services to children and young people who have been subject to or who are at risk of domestic abuse. 

We offer a range of services that support children and young people who have been exposed to domestic abuse or who are in their own unhealthy relationship.  We provide educational programmes to prevent children and young people entering into abusive relationships.  

TDAS have both one-to-one and group-based programmes that offer emotional support and education around domestic abuse and its impacts.

RSpace© and Speak Out Speak Now© are TDAS programmes written by domestic abuse specialists in consultation with children and young people.
