Emma Rafferty, the project's admin and media support, said: "Domestic abuse is endemic in our society. One in four women will be affected by domestic abuse in their lifetime and children are innocent victims.

"This funding will help to make an enormous difference to young people's lives, helping them to recover from the trauma of domestic abuse. They will learn how to keep themselves safe and have the skills and knowledge to recognise positive relationships. A huge thank you to all the players of the National Lottery for making this happen."
