What has available research in the UK told us about the risks to children?


Children living with domestic violence are at risk

CHILDREN LIVING WITH DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ARE AT RISK

  • In 2003 the Department of Health acknowledged that:

  • “At least 750,000 children a year witness domestic violence. Nearly three-quarters of children on the at risk register live in households where domestic violence occurs”


Prevalence

PREVALENCE

  • In 90% of cases children are in the same or next room – Police action.

  • 8 out of 10 children who suffer serious physical abuse grow up in home where there is DV

  • 10% of children witness mothers being sexually abused

  • Forced Female Genital Mutilation

  • In 30-66% of cases children are directly abused by the same violent man

  • Link with animal cruelty


How can children be affected

HOW CAN CHILDREN BE AFFECTED?

  • Emotional and behavioural difficulties

  • Developmental delay

  • Problems with social competence and peer relationships

  • Post-traumatic stress

  • Decline in academic achievement

  • Damaged relationship with mother

  • Increased likelihood of developing attitudes that are tolerant of violence against women


Intervention what children want

INTERVENTION – WHAT CHILDREN WANT

  • Safety for themselves and their mothers

  • Support – someone to talk to, preferably a knowledgeable peer

  • The UK Government’s National Action Plan on DV -early intervention is crucial to increasing safety for children and mothers,

  • prevention will have a long term cost benefit for service providers.


Continued

Continued

  • Currently the system spends too much money on the child protection investigative approach, rather than stopping it happening or healing it.

  • Working with the women and the children to keep them safe is essential, leading to successful survival rates and recover is more likely.

  • There is an opportunity to influence the next generation to regard violence as wrong and to enable them to work on ending it.


The partnership

  • 5 Outcomes for Children & Young People

  • Be Healthy – enjoy good physical and mental health and living a healthy lifestyle

  • Stay Safe – from a range of personal, social and environmental dangers

  • Enjoy and Achieve – getting the most out of life and developing the skills needed for adulthood

  • Making a positive contribution – by being involved with the community and society and not engaging in anti-social behaviour

  • Achieve economic well-being – not being prevented by economic disadvantages from achieving full potential in life
