OUR TRUE STORIES

On a random home visit, we learned that he was being bullied at school. To the point that he was afraid to go to school. His tormentor threatened to put rat poison in his lunch box. They are in primary school.

Child is safe. No more threats from the bully. Closer relationship with guardians. His confidence is returning. 
 

Her step father beat up her up and exposed his genitals to her. He would often wake the family up in the early hours of the morning and tell them to leave the house. He would threaten to kill them.

We are assisting her in the court process as she prepares to testify again the step father.

He is raised by his mother and grandmother. He is much closer to the gran. His mother came to PPG to register him at the beginning of the year and she was drunk. His father has emotionally abused him and his mother for as long as he can remember. Not surprising that he would have anger outbursts on the field.

Anger is being managed appropriately. Relationship between him, his coach and teammates has improved. Mother is more present.

His step father has told him that he is worthless. That he hates the sight of him. That he has never seen anything so disgusting. That he hates him.

 

He is only 9 years old.

He has recently been referred for therapeutic services and we hope to hold his hand through the process of healing.

The mother terrorises the household. She beats the grandmother. Beats the children. She is on and off drugs. She beat our 10 year old drama and art participant and the child asked us to open a charge on her behalf.

 

  • 20 therapeutic sessions

  • Interventions with family

  • Mediation sessions

  • 6 home visits

  • Ongoing check ins

  • Facilitator support

 

We supported the child through the reporting procedure and when the grandmother told the investigating officer that the charge should be withdrawn, we fought on behalf of the child’s right to keep it open.

She was consistently in trouble at school. Her mother was called in at least once a month. Her teacher was in contact with the PPG social worker regarding the misbehaviour.

We uncovered that she was longing for her father’s love but he was not interested. We helped her work through the rejection, even after helping her with attempts to reach out to him. She made peace with the situation which helped her behaviour improve for the better. She is thriving at school and there have not been complaints from school in a very long time.
