BIG grant to address child-on-parent domestic violence
A new project in Hertfordshire to reduce violence by children and young people against their parents has been given £186,500 from the Big Lottery Fund. The abuse is “seriously under-reported” according to Hertfordshire Practical Parenting Programme.
More than one million pounds is being awarded to projects across the East of England today from the Big Lottery Fund’s flagship Reaching Communities programme, which aims to help those most in need and build stronger communities.
Hertfordshire Practical Parenting Programme has identified that parents are reluctant to report child-on-parent domestic violence or take steps that will criminalise their children and therefore this type of abuse is slipping through the net of statutory agencies.
