How we can help

NHARP supports families to recover after living in a household where there has been family violence. We specialise in trauma-informed care that focuses on helping children and their caregivers to feel safe and to strengthen their relationships.

We help adults to understand their own and their child's experience of the violence and learn ways to support their family's wellbeing and recovery.
