Meeting the needs of children living with domestic violence in London

Report published

See the report here.

This meeting brought funders from across the capital together to explore the implications of a report from Refuge and the NSPCC, funded by City Bridge Trust which finds that despite improvements in approaches to addressing domestic violence in recent years, the needs of children and young people living with domestic violence are overlooked.  

Funders expressed concern at the complexity of issues surrounding this topic and the lack of co-ordinated services. London was identified as offering particular challenges to meeting the needs of children and young people. Much of the joint thinking generated from this meeting, focused on the need to fund early intervention services.

Other strategies on how funders can work together on this issue were cited and can be viewed in the report of this meeting here
