Centre 56 is a domestic abuse charity in the heart of North Liverpool.

We put the children first. We provide childcare, information and support for families and children who have suffered, or are at risk of domestic abuse or a crisis situation.


Our team

We are a small team of staff, volunteers and a Board of Trustees whose dedication and passion ensures that Centre 56 continues to support those who need it most.

The Centre 56 team is highly experienced and qualified, and they understand the needs of children and families who have suffered domestic abuse or a crisis situation.

Whether you have experienced domestic abuse or a crisis, Centre 56 can help.

Our experience and understanding helps to support families to manage their situation, enabling them to flourish.

We provide support services for families, including coffee mornings, courses, and by signposting to the correct support services.

Children and young people 

Years of experience has taught us about the impact that domestic abuse or a crisis situation can have on children, and we tailor our childcare to meet their needs.

We provide services and support for children and young people aged 2 to 14. This is done via our nursery and after-school club, Pivvy.

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults to protect them from harm.

We prioritise keeping the children at Centre 56 safe.

Centre 56 images

We take the safety of Centre 56's families seriously. 

To help protect their identity, we blur photos of the children and families that come to Centre 56 so that they aren't recognisable.

Some of the children that feature on our website are modelled by volunteers.
