Breaking the cycle of domestic abuse and giving babies the best start

What we do

We provide parents with trauma-informed, therapeutic support to break the cycle of domestic abuse and give their baby the best start in life. ​

Domestic abuse can impact lives for generations​. Our work transforms the life-chances of whole families and empowers them to move forward in positive change, starting with the baby. The baby is at the heart of everything we do.

1 in 5

Around 1 in 5 children in the UK experience domestic abuse, often when still in the womb.

1001 days

Exposure to domestic abuse in the first 1001 days of life affects a child’s IQ, emotional & physical development.

The risk

Children exposed to domestic abuse are more likely to experience abuse or be abusive as adults.

For Baby’s Sake

Our innovative programme of therapeutic support is an evidence based response to domestic abuse, trauma and what babies need from conception to age two (1001 days). 

For Baby’s Sake empowers expectant parents to make changes that last, for themselves and their baby.

Influencing policy and practice

We inspire progress in policy and practice by sharing our pioneering learning and resources. 

We promote intergenerational intervention during the precious time when babies’ brains are developing and parents are motivated to break cycles of domestic abuse and related adversities.
