COVID-19 Update

*Notice* 16/03/2020

Due to the rapidly changing situation regarding Covid 19 we have decided to cancel all groups at Alana House from Monday 16th March 2020. This is to minimise risks for our service users and our staff. Individual support will still continue, so please do come to Alana House if you have an appointment to meet with one of the team. Please do speak to your support worker if you have any concerns or call the Communities team on 0118 938 7600 if you don’t have an assigned support worker but need support. If you are feeling unwell we kindly request that you do not come to Alana House but call us so we can offer you support over the phone.

We’ll update you as to when we are able to offer groups again.

The BB4K team have created an information newsletter full of things to do with children while in isolation during Covid-19, for latest newsletter see downloads or use the following link to view them.

Bounce Back 4 Kids (BB4K) is a support programme developed by PACT that uses therapeutic techniques to support children who have been victims or witnesses of domestic abuse. The programme works with the children and their parents or carers to come to terms with experiencing family breakdowns.

The BB4K children's support groups run on a weekly basis for 10 weeks using arts and play therapy techniques to empower children, equipping them to express their feelings constructively.

For the Reading and West Berkshire areas. Groups are run by two or more trained facilitators. The sizes of the groups are kept to between six to eight children of similar ages.

The BB4K groups cover different topics designed to empower and facilitate the healing process of children:

  • Making connections
  • Breaking the silence
  • We have feelings too
  • Helping hands
  • Keeping ourselves safe
  • We are not to blame
  • Is it right to fight?
  • Understanding anger
  • Bag full of worries
