Abuse services aided hundreds of children in late 2020

A total of 550 children per month received support from a dedicated domestic violence service from September to December last year.

That is according to a report by the national social change agency Safe Ireland, which works with 39 domestic violence services nationwide.

Based on data collected by 30 services, the report shows that of the children who accessed services in the latter part of the year, at least 486 of them had never accessed a service before.  'Tracking the Shadow Pandemic - Lockdown 2' also shows that at least 265 children stayed in a range of domestic violence accommodation every month between September and December.
