Info Sheet 60: Working with children who have experienced domestic abuse

Children are often described as the ‘forgotten victims’ of domestic abuse, with significant correlation between domestic abuse and the mental, physical and sexual abuse of children. From a consultation carried out with a sample of 11-17 year olds in England, 17.5% reported being exposed to domestic abuse in their home – the concern is that numbers may be even higher across the UK due to reluctance to disclose. This Info Sheet gives advice on what practitioners can do to help children affected.
