DA-related calls to NSPCC helpline up almost half

Contacts to the NSPCC helpline from people concerned about children living with domestic abuse have increased to a monthly average of 903 since the coronavirus lockdown in March, an increase of 48.8% compared with the pre-lockdown period.

“These numbers are backed up by the experiences of our frontline staff who work with mothers and children facing domestic abuse at home,” said the National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

It is calling for local authority recovery services for children living with domestic abuse to be made a legal requirement and to receive funding.
