About Acorns Project

Welcome to Acorns Project

We deliver recovery and support services to children and young people who are affected by domestic abuse and their families, in North Tyneside and Northumberland

Did you know that around 1 in 5 children will be exposed to domestic abuse, and 1 in 5 teenagers have been abused within a relationship? (NSPCC) Of these, research has proven that around 50% will experience challenges such as poor mental health, behavioural issues, and will struggle in education because of what they have been through. If help is not offered, this can lead to poor mental and physical health in adult life.

We believe that all children deserve the best chance in life, and offer support services to raise awareness, prevent harm, and help children and young people and their families cope with and recover from their experiences.

We offer different kinds of support including:

  • Counselling and play therapy
  • One to one outreach support, in school and in community settings
  • Information advice and guidance including drop in services and a text helpline
  • Teen relationship abuse prevention, advice and support
  • Dedicated worker for parents/carers offering emotional and practical support
  • Delivery of programmes and group sessions
  • Partnership working with local agencies to support children and young people in crisis

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
