LGA responds to Action for Children report on domestic abuse

Cllr Katrina Wood, Vice Chairman of the Local Government Association’s Safer and Stronger Communities Board, responded to a report by Action for Children on domestic violence 

“Tackling domestic abuse is an issue that councils take very seriously which is why we support further measures to improve work with local partners to help support more victims and stop this horrendous crime.

“Surging demand on children’s services means that councils are increasingly being forced to prioritise spending for those at immediate risk of harm, rather than on vital earlier support services and prevention schemes which help stop domestic abuse occurring in the first place.

“The next government needs to ensure councils have long-term and sustainable funding to help protect children and families from harm.”
