If your family is being affected by domestic abuse, sexual abuse or gendered abuse and you are concerned about your child, it is important to make clear that domestic violence and abuse is not the child’s or young person’s fault. The children can be made to feel that this is occurring because of them or that they did something wrong. It is paramount that their safety comes first and help is always available.
