We are delighted to have received 3 year funding from the Ministry of Justice to help build on our children and young people's service. 

With the secured funds, NIDAS will be able to meet the increased demand for support for children and young people affected by domestic abuse. 

''We are extremely grateful to receive the additional MOJ funding for a CYP IDVA for NIDAS. This will help to meet the increased demand for our Children and Young Peoples support services. We appreciate that it was an extremely competitive process so we are grateful to the OPCC for recognising the importance of the work NIDAS do.'' 

- Sarah, Chief Executive Officer
NIDAS have successfully recruited a new art therapist to join the team to support the development and expansion of this service. 

''Hello, I am a qualified art therapist and I will be joining the NIDAS team in November 2022. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and am a member of the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT).

I am very passionate about supporting families that have been affected by domestic abuse and believe that art therapy can play a vital role in enabling families to make the journey towards recovery and empowering them to rebuild their lives after abuse. My approach to therapy is person centred, trauma sensitive, and psychodynamic.

I offer one to one, group and dyadic art therapy to adults, young people, children and parent-child. I aim to provide a safe and non-judgemental space for my clients and encourage engagement in materials to enable self-expression, exploration, and reflection, whilst helping to facilitate positive changes in wellbeing.'

Due to Queen's passing NIDAS decided to postpone the Fire Walk fundraising event .This was out of respect for Queen Elizabeth II and allowed us time to remember our monarch.

We would like to thank all those who signed up and chose to take on the challenge and raise vital funds for NIDAS. We are working to set up a new date; once this has been decided, we will be in touch. Please continue to increase your targets and raise more funds for NIDAS!
