As we head towards the Christmas holidays.
Lets try to make sure that Domestic Abuse is not the “present” that some families have to deal with.
Children witnessing parents and carers struggling, or getting cross with each other.
As a result reported cases of Domestic Abuse increase over the Christmas period.
Add this to the fact we have all been pushed very closely together because of COVID.
It is little wonder that families are stressed.
Are there things we can do to help reduce this ?
For families with small babies and children consider the ICON project.
There are various current reports and research available for staff to update themselves.
See the useful Podcast’s from the NSPCC.
Also an informative update about the Family Court actions in Domestic Abuse cases.
