Domestic Violence Support Group For Children - Referrals

To refer a child who lives in Reading or West Berkshire and may benefit from attending a BB4K programme you can:

  • Refer a child to the BB4K team who will be able to advise you on future support  groups for children or set up a new group for domestic violence help if there is a wider need

You can download a referral form here. Completed forms can be sent to

It is important that the child you are referring meets the following criteria for BB4K:

  • Children have witnessed or been victims of domestic abuse and are displaying challenging / withdrawn behaviour
  • Children must be aged between 5 and 12
  • Children must be able to acknowledge the hurting that has happened in their family and be able to talk about it
  • Children must want to attend a BB4K programme, they cannot be forced to attend
  • Parents/carers must be willing to support the child throughout the BB4K programme
  • The perpetrator must have left the family home and be out of the relationship
