Domestic Abuse: its impact on children, services in Wales and what we’re calling for

Children in Wales, NSPCC Cymru/Wales and Welsh Women’s Aid are calling for improved support for children growing up in homes with parental domestic abuse in Wales. NSPCC research has found that 1 in 5 children has been exposed to domestic abuse in the home and that funding for provision of services for children and young people is patchy and inconsistent. These issues were highlighted at a joint Cross Party Group meeting of CPG on Violence against Women and Children and CPG on Children and Young People, held on 6 February 2019. Together the three organisations are calling for:

 

  • Dedicated services for children who experience domestic abuse in the home
  • Local partnerships to prioritise developing or establishing support services for children as part of their work to provide victims with equal access to support services
  • Improved prevention and early intervention, including mandatory healthy relationship education in the new school curriculum

Please see our joint briefing for more information.
