Charity Against Violence and Abuse (AVA) has launched a new research project, Hear ME to explore and develop awareness and responses to adult child to parent abuse, focusing the voices of mothers and their experiences. The project includes a research report and toolkit for practitioners.
The research highlights the widescale impact of this type of abuse on mothers and families, as well as challenges with the current framework for support and interventions. It identifies the need for better responses, earlier effective intervention, specialist funding, more campaigning and publicity to raise awareness and visibility of this issue, but also the need for further research. The report makes recommendations at both a local and national level for practice and policy change.
The accompanying guidance for practitioners provides practical steps and resources to support in improving the response for families experiencing adult child to parent abuse.
