Inquiry wishes for domestic violence education taught at primary school
A report by Birmingham City Council says that communities and families should also play a part in cutting the estimated 25,000 domestic abuse cases in the city.
A survey by Birmingham’s Community Safety Partnership found that in 2013 there were 25,000 cases of domestic violence in the city, however over the same period police only recorded 8,657, reports the Birmingham Mail.
It was also revealed that young people are particularly at risk of abuse, which includes manipulation and emotional abuse by a controlling partner.
Councillor Mariam Khan (Lab, Washwood Heath), who chaired the inquiry, said: “It is for all of us, in all our communities to challenge the behaviours and attitudes that lead to relationship violence – that is how we will prevent it in the long term. We recognise that often people do not want to talk about these things or acknowledge they are happening and that sometimes they are seen as culturally-sensitive and therefore should not be discussed. Such beliefs should be challenged in communities.”
A key recommendation following the report is that all schools should have relationship education in place.
