Safe Haven: Tarian's Tale

Some children and families may need extra help during the current period of restrictions. It’s important for everyone, even those whose homes are happy and safe, to understand that help is available.

We’ve decided to adapt our book “Tarian’s Tale” into a video feature to help introduce the difficult topic of domestic abuse in a sensitive way. This story would normally be read by an officer from SchoolBeat, as part of our lesson “Safe Haven”, which gently introduces the ideas that for some home is not always a happy place, that we should support our friends and we should ask for help if someone is unhappy.

If you feel worried or sad about something, please ask for help from someone you can trust. This can include helplines like Childline on 0800 1111, where an adult will try to offer help and advice.
