We support families with children and young people under the age of 18.
We accept referrals for children and young people who:
- have experienced developmental trauma
- are at risk of placement breakdown
- are going up the care continuum
- have exhausted all other services.
There are a range of behaviours and situations that we work with at the ARC which affect various aspects of a child's life.
Parent/s may be struggling to instil boundaries and remain consistent and calm. They might not understand their child and know how to support them and meet their needs. Children might be experiencing feelings of anger, worthlessness or shame and they might not know how to express this. Often, it is expressed through being withdrawn, self-harming, disruptive or aggressive behaviour.
We recognise that this has an affect at home, at school, with friends and generally engaging in life. The ARC helps these families by providing them with a different understanding of themselves, equipping them with ideas, strategies and the strength to make changes and progress toward a happier home.
