The long term effects of domestic violence on the social and emotional capabilities of young people are enormous and it is vital that intervention happens early on to reduce the long term effects on young people. In order to do this we must raise awareness of these long term effects, highlighting the disastrous consequences that domestic violence has, not only on the mother and father, but also on the family unit as a whole. it is essential that organisations like Equation continue to promote healthy relationships with children and young people.
I would like to commend Equation on the success of their work. The long term benefits to those children, to their families and to society are invaluable.
School staff should heed the advice provided by Equation and look to work with them wherever possible.
