Councils invited to online discussion on effect of domestic violence on children

The National Children's Commissioner, Megan Mitchell, and 1800 Respect have extended an invitation to all councils to take part in an innovative online forum that will discuss the effects of family and domestic violence on children.

The webinar is a unique opportunity to have your say, participate in the discussion, or simply listen and learn.

The Commissioner will discuss her role and the development of her 2015 Parliamentary report into children’s rights, which has a substantive focus on how children aged 0-17 are affected by family and domestic violence.

Participants will be asked to contribute to the development of this important report by providing a response to six questions around the impact of domestic violence on children.
