The effects of Domestic abuse on children

Many children exposed to violence in the home are also victims of physical abuse.

 

Children who witness domestic violence or are victims of abuse themselves are at serious risk for long-term physical and mental health problems.

 

Children who witness violence between parents may also be at greater risk of being violent in their future relationships. If you are a parent who is experiencing abuse, it can be difficult to know how to protect your child.

NDAS aims to give all children and young people the confidence to stay safe and regardthe freedom to be children once more
