Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner Jason Ablewhite has announced details of a multi-agency project to support young people who experience domestic abuse or sexual violence.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Prevention and Intervention Project will aim to tackle the adverse experiences of young victims of domestic abuse through community-based counselling services.
The announcement comes after Ofsted called for greater awareness of how the issues affect children’s wellbeing.
Mr Ablewhite said: “By providing a local, joined-up response, we can make sure the right support is provided at the right time, as well as intervening early to prevent these crimes from happening in the first place.”
The project is delivered by national charity Embrace-Child Victims of Crime (CVOC), and Ormiston Families in partnership with a range of different organisations and charities.
