Domestic Abuse

Babies, children and young people who see or hear grown-ups arguing can be very upset even if they don’t show it. They can feel scared, lonely and confused. Even very tiny babies can get frightened when they hear loud or cross voices and arguments, and this can affect their health and development.

NSPCC says domestic abuse is “any type of controlling, bullying, threatening or violent behaviour between people in a relationship.” Domestic abuse can happen in any relationship and is not only physical violence. It can include emotional, physical, sexual, psychological (how someone thinks and feels), or financial abuse.

Things You Can Do To Help

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, talking to someone can help. There are support services that offer free confidential help:

• National Domestic Violence helpline 0808 200 0247
• Norfolk Children's Advice and Duty Service (CADS) 0344 800 8020
