Parents and Carers

We offer a range of holistic services to meet the needs of families affected by domestic abuse in North Tyneside and Northumberland


Are you the parent or carer of a child who needs our support?

Our team of specialist workers provide a range of therapeutic and support services for children and young people aged between 4 and 18. We aim to provide a safe space for children to express thoughts and feelings and to help them make sense of the difficulties they are experiencing. We can also share advice and information on coping strategies and sign post to other sources of help.

You can make a self-referral by contacting us direct on 0191 349 8366 or via the referral form on our contact page. We also accept referrals from a range of services you may be working with, such as education, health or social workers.

Support for the whole family

Acorns can support the parents and carers of children who attend, or are on the waiting list for Acorns. We have a range of family support services which includes:

  • Counselling and other therapeutic processes
  • Emotional and practical support
  • Information, advice and sign-posting

We regularly hold different types of events, including an Introduction to Acorns Coffee Morning, which explains a bit more about who we are and what we, and where we can answer questions you may have. To see when our next events are being held, visit our Events page.
