Breaking the cycle of violence

Building a future for the most excluded

The SFSC members implement a range of programmes for street-involved and highly excluded children, including educational and therapeutic activities, community centres, residential facilities, street outreach, home visits and community liaison. Although our programmes and activities vary, there are shared principles and a shared intentionality to our work which we set out in this booklet.

This booklet is designed to give an overview of a strategy for working with excluded children and families affected by violence in the home. It is not intended to be comprehensive in its reach, and neither is it meant to be an operational manual. We hope it will give a flavour of what this strategy looks like in practice, and promote thinking and discussion around the critical issues of how to achieve inclusion for highly excluded children and solve the intergenerational transmission of family violence.
