Domestic Abuse can happen to anyone - it has no regard for your sex, your age, the amount of money you have, where you live, what ethnicity you are, whether you are gay, straight or transgender, or if you are religious or not.

Once abuse has started it is likely to happen again. Abuse is rarely an isolated, one-off incident. Usually, it is part of a pattern of controlling behaviour that becomes worse with time.

Child Action Northwest (Community Based Services)

Inspiring Lives and Changing Futures– it’s what we have been doing since 1886! We believe that every child has the right to achieve their full potential whatever their circumstances.

We’re working in the heart of communities wherever there’s a need. In partnership with other organisations, we work together to end family cycles of deprivation, drug and alcohol abuse, youth crime, teenage pregnancies, and broken families.

Child Action Northwest supports children and young people in our care to be the best they can in order to have the opportunity to succeed in school, to grow up to enjoy healthy relationships, to have access to training and employment opportunities to be successful in the world of work.

We believe that families are the bedrock of networks, neighbourhoods and communities that form the fabric of so much of our everyday lives. That’s why we’re supporting and strengthening families across the region where parents are struggling with problems such as unemployment, addictions, domestic violence, relationship breakdown, mental and physical health problems. We offer a range of projects that can dovetail together across a range of disciplines to strengthen families and communities and ultimately bring about a better quality of life for the children and young people in those areas we serve.

Our innovative services have been developed to be complementary and work in harmony with each other to deliver a complete solution to improving the lives of the children and young people, families and communities that we support. Underpinning all of our work is a commitment to bring about better chances for children and young people in some of the most difficult circumstances and deprived communities across the North West.

Home-Start Family Support

Home-Start Family Support

Home-Start Trafford and Salford supports families going through difficult times by providing volunteers who visit them regularly in their own homes. As a parent you might ask for Home-Start's help for all sorts of reasons:

  • You may be feeling isolated in your community, have no family nearby and be struggling to make friends
  • You may be finding it hard to cope because of your own, or your child's illness.
  • You may have been hit hard by the death of a loved one
  • You may be really struggling with emotional and physical demands of having twins or triplets - perhaps born into an already large family.

Help is at hand. We support any family living in Trafford with a child of any age or any family living in Salford who have at least one child under the age of five and who maybe finding it hard to cope.

But what do we mean by 'support'? If you ask for Home-Start's help you can be sure of total confidentiality.  Almost 25% of families refer themselves, the remainder having requests made on their behalf e.g. by a health visitor or GP.

We offer 3 types of support for Trafford families, they are:-

  1. A couple of home visits from Home-Start staff, for example information will be provided about other services/referrals maybe made and encouragement to access universal services.
  2. 4 months support (40 hours maximum) from a Family Support Worker within the Home-Start staff team
  3. Parent to parent, 2 hour weekly volunteer befriending support, available for a maximum of 6 months.



After asking for our support you will meet with one of our local co-ordinators who will carefully match you with one of our volunteers. Our volunteers, who all have parenting experience, will visit you for a couple of hours a week and give you both emotional and practical help.
