Abstract [en]

The chapter provides in-depth knowledge of how children’s lives change when they move with their mothers into a women’s shelter and how the activities for children at the residence reveal and address their needs. The chapter also presents how mothers perceive the situation of their children. More children than women live at this shelter. Almost all the children are victims of violence. Most were born in Sweden, but several have mothers or fathers who were born in another country. Some of the children are subjected to honour-related violence, with threats of kidnapping. No systematic violence and security assessment at which the children can make their voices heard is ordinarily conducted at the shelter. Half of the school-age children did not attend school for several months and received home schooling only to a very limited extent. Many of the younger children did not attend preschool. Resilience can be promoted for children in the life at a shelter also by volunteers.
