Domestic violence | Safeguarding Training Centre

Issue

The government’s definition of domestic violence and abuse is:

“Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality.” 

Witnessing domestic violence is child abuse and can seriously harm children and young people. Children who live in homes where there’s domestic violence are also likely to be at risk of other types of abuse. 

Teenagers can also become victims of domestic abuse in their own relationships.
