Domestic Abuse

Women’s Aid defines domestic abuse as 'an incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening, degrading and violent behaviour, including sexual violence, in the majority of cases by a partner or ex-partner, but also by a family member or carer.'

It is very common. In the vast majority of cases it is experienced by women and is perpetrated by men.  

Children and young people are often the forgotten victims of domestic abuse.  Adults often believe they are protecting their children from what is happening and many think that if children are not actually in the room when violence or abuse is happening they won’t pick up on this.

Young people can also be the victims of domestic abuse in their own relationships.

Below are a list of links that we hope you will find the information and support you are looking for. For more information please contact the school nurse on:
