Survivor Support Programmes
Own my Life is a course of 12 sessions (with another 4 optional for support and de-brief) for survivors of domestic abuse who are no longer in the abusive relationship. Each session is an hour long with a maximum of 12 participants. Refuge are now running the Own my Life course in Fenland / Peterborough / Huntingdon areas (first sessions will be on Zoom).
Refuge are also running a different version for male victims which will be more about awareness and recognising abuse.
Survivors can self refer by emailing Cambsgroupwork@refuge.org.uk
