Witnessing and experiencing domestic abuse can have a serious impact on a child’s long-term health. It is a top priority that vulnerable children and young people remain safe during this uncertain period. If you are concerned that a child is at risk of harm, you should refer this information to children’s social care or to the police if you believe the child is in immediate danger.
NSPCC: The NSPCC has issued guidance for spotting and reporting the signs of abuse
on their website. The NSPCC Helpline is available for anyone with concerns about a child to contact for
