Support for Young People & Families affected by Sexual Harm
The Horizon service aims to help reinstate a sense of safeness and well-being for children and teenagers who are experiencing distress as a result of sexual harm. The service works in partnership with other professionals, through consultation and assessment, to develop a joint understanding of the strengths and difficulties of both the young person and their environment. Horizon specializes in working with complex trauma and will focus on building compassionate resilience and developing positive attachment relationships.
Horizon is in partnership with Safe! (Commissioned by the Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner), which supports young people affected by crime.
Horizon is open to children and teenagers under 18 and living in Oxfordshire. Please feel free to contact us for any queries or to discuss potential referrals.
