Too often, the impact of domestic abuse on children isn't dealt with, increasing the negative impact on them in the future. That's why we're committed to breaking the cycle of abuse. 

Last year, we supported over 1,200 children offering a wide range of community-based outreach and preventative services for children who have been affected by domestic abuse. These services work with both children and their parents who have witnessed or been the victims of domestic abuse, helping them to understand their experiences and to re-build relationships with each other. 

We work with young people to ensure they understand the importance of developing healthy relationships. Last year over 1,500 young people attended training sessions about healthy relationships and domestic abuse, and over 150 school pupils took part in targeted workshops about sexting, sexual coercion and consent. Our ADaPT programme delivers healthy relationship education to teenagers at risk of abuse.
