The MPower programme is run by the University of Northampton in partnership with Eve, with financial support from the Daphne III Programme of the European Union.

MPower was developed as part of a two- year European research project called UNARS. The UNARS team has interviewed over 100 children & young people across Europe who have lived in situations of violence in Italy, Greece, Spain and the UK. Within these countries we have also interviewed carers and professionals.

We conducted these interviews in order to better understand how children and young people make sense of and cope with violence in their families and how they might be able to build a positive sense of themselves in these kinds of circumstances.

Findings from our interviews have helped us to develop a good understanding of the ways that children can be resilient and resourceful in circumstances of domestic violence and how they might be empowered to build this capacity for coping. These findings inform our 10-week therapeutic intervention programme.

Our programme is led and facilitated by experienced, sensitive and skilled practitioners, including a trainee counsellor in children and young people, and a trained and experienced domestic abuse practitioner.

Information to Parents & Carers

  • Has your child or the child you care for previously lived in a situation of domestic violence?

  • Is your child aged 11-16 years?

  • Is your child now away from violence and living in a safe, violence-free home?

    We are inviting young people aged 11-16 to take part in a 10-week therapeutic domestic violence programme aimed at building children’s capacity for resilience and coping.
