How to Refer:

Agencies in my area:

If you do not fit our referral criteria as stated above you can see what support may be available in your area by clicking onto this link this will take you to an external website which will give you information on the agencies across the UK who may be able to support you.

To refer to our service you will have to either live in Enfield, Haringey or Barnet or your child has to attend a school in these boroughs. We support parents/carers who are being abused by their children and work with the whole family. The children have to be between the ages of 6-18 years. Abuse covers emotional, verbal, physical, psychological and sexual. The abuse has to be outside of what would be seen as normal child behaviour.
You can self-refer or be referred by an outside agency by requesting support via our contact page and someone will be in touch with you to arrange an initial meeting to make an assessment for more information on how we can support you and your family please click here.

Help raise awareness of Parent Abuse:

Parent Abuse is a mainly hidden form of abuse and as such there is very limited information on the extent of the problem as incidents do not get logged on any health or police database. You can help us raise awareness of this issue by completing our parent survey. This will help us to highlight the issue so it does not remain hidden which in turn will aid other families to come forward for support.

Paars is a registered Charity and all our services are free to our clients. At Paars we understand that this form of abuse is not as simple as being down to bad or failed parenting.

The issues with many of our families are varied and complex and as such needs to be handled carefully. Our intervention looks at helping to solve the factors that sustain the abuse. As well as offering the holistic support via our counsellors and experienced volunteers we also offer practical support through our education classes, careers advice, outward bound activities etc so that the young person/parent/carer has a more promising future outlook. The young person is seen as part of the solution not just the problem.

We also recognise that the holistic approach can take time and the important thing is to keep everyone safe not just the parent/carer but also the young person and other siblings in the home. If you feel that you or your family are in immediate danger you may have no choice but to call the Police as hard as this is. In a situation that is immediately dangerous call 999 if not then call on 111.
