Domestic Abuse Fractures Lives

Young People/Children's Services

Domestic abuse affects children from every background, race and class.  You may not know about it, but it does not mean that it's not happening.  The damaging effects of domestic abuse can be long lasting and impact on every area of the lives of children and young people.

  • At least 750,000 children each year witness domestic abuse

  • 1 in 4 women are abused, and their children in 40% - 70% of cases

  • 45% of teenagers believe it is acceptable in some circumstances

On behalf of the Kent Domestic Abuse Consortium (KDAC), we deliver the 'All About Me' programme providing support to children aged from 5 to 13 who have been affected by domestic abuse.   We deliver this programme in Dartford, Gravesham and Sevenoaks.

On behalf of KDAC, we also deliver a Positive Relationships programme for adolescent girls aged 11- 16 who are at risk of teenage pregnancy or domestic abuse.    We deliver this programme in Dartford, Gravesham,  Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge & Malling and Tunbridge Wells.

For further information regarding either of the KDAC programmes please email admin@risingsunkent.com or telephone 01227 452852.
