This report describes a research study that investigated work with children in refuges for women and children experiencing domestic violence. The study also explores the effects on children of experiencing and witnessing such violence. A multi-methodological approach was adopted involving archive research, a literature review, a detailed telephone survey of all refuge groups and nine in-depth refuge case studies.
