Myra and Mia were referred to Welcare via Lambeth’s domestic violence service after domestic abuse towards Myra by Mia’s father. Welcare programmes for Myra (Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities) and Mia (MySpace) helped them both to come to terms with the abuse and their feelings.
Louise and daughter Ada* were recommended to Welcare by a play therapist in Ada’s school. 5-year-old Ada’s father had been violent and emotionally abusive towards Louise, and antagonism between the two was affecting Ada.

Children’s Services referred mum Charlotte to us when she was struggling with her son Alfie’s challenging behaviour. This included extreme tantrums which would last for hours until Charlotte gave in to what he wanted.
Kayleigh and her son Euan (22 months) were referred to Welcare by their health visitor. Kayleigh was a young mum experiencing a range of physical and mental health difficulties, struggling to meet Euan's needs.
