Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council as the lead agency for the Newcastle Partnership is inviting specialist domestic abuse providers, to provide a quotation for the delivery of a support service specifically for children and young people, which is intended to complement and enhance existing domestic abuse services commissioned across Staffordshire.
The Newcastle Partnership is committed to delivering a high quality service to the vulnerable and those at risk in the Borough of Newcastle. The main purpose of the service is to offer specialist support to children and young people affected by domestic abuse, either due to them witnessing it within the family home or experiencing it in their own relationships.
In the recent needs assessment entitled ‘Understanding Domestic Abuse in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent – 2016’, it was identified that around 3 out of 4 victims receiving support (77%), had at least one child present in the home at the time of the incident(s) and 2 out of 5 victims lived with more than one child. National research from the NSPCC and Refuge also suggests that a third of all children in homes where domestic abuse takes place, are also directly abused by the perpetrator, so there is no doubt that there is a need for the service to have strong links with safeguarding and support services for children once established.
