NSPCC Why language matters: domestic abuse

Last updated by Stephanie.Rosser@essex.gov.uk on Tuesday, May 2, 2023

 

NSPCC Learning has published a blog post on the term 'domestic abuse' and 'domestic violence' as part of the Why language matters blog series.

 

The blog looks at how the term 'domestic violence' can be limiting and explores the impacts of this on:

 

  • professionals and family support services
  • people experiencing domestic abuse
  • the perceptions of the general public.
