Against the backdrop of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021 where children, for the first time, are recognised as
victims of domestic abuse in their own right, the expert speakers at the webinar highlighted 6 key areas of
best practice for children’s services and local authorities to consider when supporting child survivors of
domestic abuse.
