Child-focused domestic abuse project to be set up

The UK Trauma Council (UKTC) and Refuge are to devise an intervention programme primarily to tackle the impact domestic abuse can have on children and young people.

“This is an opportunity to ensure that children and their protective parents who have experienced domestic abuse receive the very best, evidence-based intervention as early as possible to enhance their recovery and healing,” said David Trickey, the council’s co-director.

Refuge’s interim director of service delivery Denise Brown added: “Children and young people don’t just witness abuse, they live with it, and it can affect every part of their development, especially their wellbeing and mental health.”

The organisations say the project will produce a culturally sensitive programme which can be delivered by front line staff in refuges, shelters and other safe accommodation.
