The ABAN Project

The ABAN project was set up in October 2001 and is funded by the children fund to 2005. The project provides outreach services in local schools and family homes, within Newham Area. Teaching staff and other specialised workers make the majority of referrals, five percent are self-referrals.

Families

The project works with the whole family, a service provision of emotional and practical support for isolated mothers who have experienced domestic violence, using services provided in local schools as a universal point of contact. Practical support consisting of casework, counselling adults and children Sign posting to outside agencies within the borough of Newham.

Our Approach Children /young people

To provide a safe place in a therapeutic setting to allow children and young people to express their experiences, and for them to understand they are not alone, using the medium of creative play.

Giving children/young people a voice

Children are regularly consulted on how they want to use the service during school holidays. Summer 2003 children and young people requested day trips. The trips ranged from a visit to Margate London Zoo Hampton Court via a boat trip, and Lambourne End a day of outdoor activities. Children photographed the experiences.
The activities provided continuity of service provision to reduce the possibility of a crises occurring during this period. It also enabled the children and young people to build relationships with each other and the support workers. In addition provided respite for parents /caregivers
