Update from Northumbria PCC on domestic abuse actions

Message from Kim McGuinness, Police and Crime Commissioner:

"The Coronavirus pandemic has hit many of our communities hard, and our members, volunteers and councillors who work so hard locally, will know first-hand just how hard it’s been for so many.

I've continued to support many of those neighbourhoods with a specialist funding pot for local support groups, with targeted funds to tackle domestic abuse and by keeping work going to support young people in particular through the Violence Reduction Unit, but I know there's more to do.

Often Overlooked

Published by Agenda, Often Overlooked explores how self-harm among young women is often linked to poverty and disadvantage.

This new research, undertaken by analysts at the National Centre of Social Research, is one of the first to focus on connections between poverty and non-suicidal self-harm in young women across England. It is based on new analysis of data from more than 20,000 people.
