Regardless of your age, Domestic Abuse is always wrong.

Young Person

Talking with the Women's Aid worker was good because it has taught me what is and isn't okay in a relationship.

1 in 7 children under the age of 18

live with domestic abuse in the UK each year

Young person

I learnt that it is not my fault.

90% of children living with domestic abuse

are in the same or next room when domestic abuse takes place

We now know that children and young people are not merely witnesses of domestic abuse but should be acknowledged as equal victim's of domestic abuse.

Women’s Aid (England) have a resource designed to help you talk with young people about domestic abuse.
