Date:16 JAN 2023
Third slide

Over £17 million has been awarded to programmes across England and Wales to support children affected by domestic abuse.

The funding will develop early intervention strategies to prevent violence against women and girls, the Safeguarding Minister announced on 4 January.

More than £10 million has been allocated to organisations providing vital support to children who have survived domestic abuse, such as counselling and 1:1 support. These projects include Welsh Women’s Aid, The Children’s Society and SafeLives.

This will be rolled out through the Children Affected by Domestic Abuse Fund. Originally set up in 2018, this fund has already supported thousands of children and families.

Minister for Safeguarding, Sarah Dines, said: "The impact of domestic abuse is devastating and it is especially heartbreaking that children are being affected by this horrific crime. This is why we have invested additional funding into vital services supporting children who have been impacted. We are also proud to invest further in projects which identify the most effective ways to intervene early and prevent these crimes from being committed in the first place, which will protect those most vulnerable to abuse."
