Bounce Back for Kids (BB4K) is a support programme for children and families affected by domestic abuse.  The programme uses therapeutic techniques, aimed at children aged between 3 and 11 years old and their non-abusing parent.  It has been developed by Parents And Children Together (PACT) and provides support to families once the abuse has ended and the perpetrator is no longer living in the family home.

The role of a BB4K Support Worker is key to supporting our families through providing outreach support, co-facilitating the BB4K group work as well as targeted 1-2-1 delivery of the programme when required. 

If you have a good understanding of domestic abuse and the impact on children and families, and experience of delivering groupwork programmes for vulnerable parents and children in community settings, we would very much like to hear from you.
