The Impact of abuse on children

A new report says one in five children have witnessed some form of domestic abuse.

A new public information campaign is needed to raise awareness of domestic abuse, a major new report will say this week. According to its authors, publicity modeled on past public health campaigns would raise the profile of the issue and make perpetrators think twice before abusing partners.

“What we are talking about is thinking about messages in the way health have done around smoking and alcohol and other things,” said Eleanor Schooling Ofsted, national director for social care (UK).“I realize that domestic abuse is of a different order and so the way that message is put across is going to have to be worked through and would be complex because you would have to target difference audience in different ways.”
