Cost of domestic abuse

The charity Hestia has published findings from analysis carried out by the charity Pro Bono Economics into the cost of failing to provide support to children exposed to domestic violence. The report, which focuses on the long term costs incurred by the state in supporting children who develop conduct and attention disorders as a result of exposure to severe domestic violence, estimates a potential total cost of between £480 million and £1.4 billion.
