Who we are

MyTime logoMy Time is an award-winning, pioneering and innovative, multi-lingual, community domestic abuse and mental health service provider working in the Midlands. MyTime is a division of Richmond Fellowship. 

What we do

Our YUVA service provides a specifically tailored young people’s intervention designed to work with young people aged 11-18 years old age, who have used or are using violence or abuse towards their parent or carer.

This service is designed to support a young person to identify their abusive behaviours and to help them learn new non-abusive alternatives to abusive behaviour.

This service also works directly with the parent or carer who is impacted by the abuse to provide support to them throughout the duration of the intervention. This intervention may be delivered in the form of 1:1 work and/or group work.

Who we help

  • Young people aged between 11-18 using or have used violence or abuse towards a parent/carer. Parents/carers of the young person may also seek support.
  • Must reside within Dudley, Sandwell or Walsall.
