Domestic Violence and Abuse Needs Assessment 2014

Domestic Violence and Abuse Needs AssessmentDomestic violence and abuse is a complex and challenging social problem within families, which is largely hidden and underreported and disproportionately affects women and children as victims. This needs assessment explores the impact on children, young people and adults of being exposed to domestic violence and abuse within their families or who are themselves within abusive teenage relationships.
