Trust helps project tackle teenage domestic violence

Man loooking sad


A new project which aims to prevent troubled teenagers hitting out against their parents and other loved ones has been awarded more than £800 from the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust.domestic-violence2

‘A Better Life for All’ is in the process of gaining charitable status and has been established to help tackle the problem of teenage domestic violence at home.

Covering Hull and the East Riding, it will aim to work with families to resolve issues causing conflict at home, as well as holding talks and giving presentations in schools and pupil exclusion units.

It is hoped that by tacking issues at the right time and offering crucial support, it will prevent teenagers from heading down the wrong road and potentially going to prison in the future, and importantly get them back into mainstream education.

The project has been awarded more than £800 from the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust to buy a laptop, printer and projector, which will help kick-start the charity’s work in supporting families when it officially launches on August 25.

Manager Gary Swales, who is working alongside social worker and senior child practitioner Paul Staines to make the project possible, said being able to buy the equipment has made a huge difference.

He said: “As a new project, having someone to finance these things for us is a massive help and a massive amount of money to us. We haven’t got significant funds at the moment but we are bidding for some, so it has been a real boost for us not to have to worry about it.

“The Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust has been great to deal with and we are so grateful for every single penny.”

A Better Life for All will primarily work with families in Hull and the East Riding, who can self-refer to the service, or can possibly be referred through the local authority or other charity organisations.

Partnership working could also be established through the Probation Service or Youth Offending Service.

Gary said: “Paul will work with families in the home, through counselling and behaviour intervention.

“Teenage domestic violence is not particularly measured at present as parents can be reluctant to ring the police about their own child’s behaviour because, for understandable reasons.

“That makes it difficult to measure, but we know it is a significant issue that’s on the increase and it isn’t being addressed. We hope to do that be providing somewhere else for them to turn to.”

Gary says he is looking forward to the project, which is also benefiting through donated office space and website design from other supporters.

“If we can keep one kid out of prison, it’s a success,” he said.

“If we can cut down the number of times parents are having to call the police, it’s a success, and if we can get children back into mainstream education, it’s also helpful in that way.

“We want to see what we can do for families.”

The Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust supports projects making a positive impact on their communities, with grants of up to £2,500 available on application.

Chair of the Trust, Jo Hudgell, said: “We have been delighted to lend our support to A Better Life for All with this grant to help them on their way.

“It’s early days for the project but it is one that can hopefully make a really positive difference to the community with the right support, helping families where teenage domestic violence is an issue.

“We wish them every success in their venture and look forward to hearing how they are progressing in the months and years to come.”
