Domestic violence and abuse is a largely hidden problem, but what we do know about incidence and prevalence suggests it is a widespread and very serious public health issue.

  • An estimated 1.3 million women and 695,000 men aged 16 to 59 are affected by domestic violence and abuse per annum, with 1-2 women in England and Wales killed each week by their partner/ex-partner (Office of National Statistics 2018a)
  • Around 2.5 million children under 16 live with an adult who has experienced domestic violence and abuse, including 695,000 children with adults who experienced it within the last year (Children’s Commissioner 2018a)

This revised training programme has been developed in collaboration with partners who bring a wealth of experience in the field of domestic violence and abuse through their work, as well as some who have expertise through personal lived experience. The programme is designed to support the development of Champions for the subject area, providing cascade resources to underpin the onward delivery of an up-to-date awareness programme for their HV team colleagues.
