On average, survivors of domestic violence contact 11 agencies before obtaining the help they need.

On average, a woman is assaulted at least 35 times before she reports an assault to the police.

Domestic violence is equally prevalent among all income groups and among people from all ethnic groups.

Women who have experienced domestic violence are 15 times more likely to abuse alcohol, 9 times more likely to abuse drugs, 3 times more likely to be diagnosed as depressed or psychotic and 5 times more likely to attempt suicide.

Considering these statistics, this e-learning course is suitable for any worker who is in regular contact or works regularly with children, young people and their families. The course will raise your awareness of the issues surrounding domestic violence particularly for those workers that come into contact with survivors.
