The DART programme aids families strengthen their relationship following domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse happens when one person hurts or bullies another person who is or was their partner or who is in the same family. It can happen between people who are going out together, living together, have children together or are married to each other. It can happen either when people live together or separately.
Domestic abuse can have a huge impact on children.
Their responses to witnessing such abuse can be very different, and some are affected more than others. These effects may be short or long-term and can impact on many aspects of your family’s life.
Often domestic abuse is not discussed between family members, which can have an impact on how parent/carers and children relate to each other.
