Preventing Domestic Abuse for Children (PEACH)

This study brings together international evidence on preventive interventions in domestic abuse for children and young people under 18 in the general population.

These preventive interventions include programmes delivered in school, and media and community campaigns and initiatives specifically targeting children and young people. The study includes a systematic literature review, a mapping study of current provision in the UK and consultation with experts, policy makers, practitioners and young people.
