Half of children in need have experienced domestic violence

Postby Jacinta, FRG Adviser » Wed Feb 28, 2018 2:46 pm

The Local Government Association (LGA) reports that half of all children assessed to be in need of extra help and support have experienced or witnessed domestic violence .

The LGA, which represents 370 councils in England and Wales, states that councils need resources to cope with the challenges of domestic abuse at a local level.

For more details and to read more about what they are calling on the Government to do please see here: LGA: Half of children in need referred to councils experience domestic violence.
