Domestic Violence Support Groups - DOVES
Our Domestic Violence Support Group (DOVES) - a six week course - has an intake of about 12 young people (approximately 50 a year) between the ages of 9 and 16 who have suffered from domestic violence either directly or indirectly. Domestic violence accounts for 75% of children on the Child Protection Register, and 30% of recorded violent crime is attributed to domestic abuse (figures from GSCB CP training update, 2008).
