Asking Children and Young People what they think about the Impact of Domestic Abuse
The Cleveland Safer Communities VCS Network would like to invite organisations in contact with children and young people the opportunity to share their views about the impact of domestic abuse on children and young people.
Sharon Caddell, officer at the Cleveland Office Police Crime Commissioner, is leading on a Cleveland wide collaborative bid to the Home Office for funding to address this issue. Whilst a range of organisations are working with Sharon on a bid, the Netowrk wanted to encourage young people to contribute to the conversation. Due to time constraints around the bid it would be helpful, if you have an opportunity to discuss the below with your groups, to feed back to email firstname.lastname@example.org later than Thursday 30 August.
Brief for discussion with children and young people:
A number of people from organisations like the police, health, education and charities across Cleveland are going to apply for some money from the government to support children and young people affected by domestic abuse. To help them think about what would help we would like to know what you think is important for them to think about when they are working out what would help young people.
What kind of things do you think young people experience when they are affected by domestic abuse?
What do you think would help?
Have you got any specific ideas for what could be done or offered?
Is there anything that you think this group of organisations applying for the money need to think about?
