How does Break4Change (B4C) work?

B4C is a 10 week programme for both young people and their parents and includes ways that families can address this behaviour.  Parents and Young people work in groups and learn strategies for managing behaviour.  The programme includes creative sessions for young people run by Audio-Active using art and music.  

Groups are open to young people of secondary school age 11-16 with ongoing and reported abuse towards their parent (s) / carer (s) as well as to parents/carers who have experienced violence / abuse from their child.

The programme runs twice a year and is a partnership between the Council’s Integrated Team for Families (ITF), Youth Offending Service (YOS), Rise and AudioActive.
