Children’s area

Often the children have themselves experienced or witnessed violence. Coming to the women's refuge uproots them from their usual environment, and they miss their friends, school and familiar surroundings. For that reason we attach great importance to intensive support of the children by professional educational staff. Close cooperation with mothers and/or with external specialist organisations can be necessary.

Our women's refuge has a children's room fitted out along the lines of standard kindergartens (play kitchen, play mat, reading corner, toys, games and craft materials for all ages). The children are supervised here by staff during fixed opening hours.

The most important goals and subjects for our work with children and young people in the women's refuge are:

large blue sofa with stuffed animals
Children's drawing with house tree and sun
Shelf with lots of toys
