Understand more about the Impact of Domestic Abuse on Children in this 2 hr workshop delivered on zoom.

About this event

This session is funded by Essex Community Foundation and The National Lottery Community Fund.

This workshop explores the impact that different types of domestic abuse have on children living in abusive homes. 89% of children having lived in abusive homes lack emotional wellbeing and 60% feel they are to blame for the abuse that may be taking place. For many, the abuse may just become normal for them. Understanding this impact is fundamental to a greater understanding of domestic abuse and its manifestation. Understand how children are often used as a weapon by the perpetrator as well as becoming a complex barrier for victims trying to their change their circumstances. This workshop also includes ways in which we can both recognise the signs and support children safely and effectively.

Organiser Alpha Vesta CIC

Organiser of Impact of Domestic Abuse on Children

Alpha Vesta CIC provide training and consultancy in domestic abuse for businesses and organisations across Essex.  In the UK, the Home Office calculates the national costs of domestic abuse as £66 billion including police, criminal justice system, social care, health and mental health sector costs as well as to the economy.   With 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men affected by domestic abuse at some point during their adult life and 1/3 of all violent crime in Essex being domestic related, the impact is widespread across communities and impacts directly in the workplace.  Victims and their children live in fear of what the next day will bring and their family and friends often struggle to understand why their loved one doesn’t ‘just leave’.
