The Campaign for Action on Family Violence
This website has information about family violence, what it is, where to get help and how you can help if you know someone affected by family violence.
Children are affected by family violence whether they see it, hear it or just know about it. If you are concerned about a child you know, we encourage you to take action.

I was the eldest of three girls and from what I can remember we had a pretty good life in the early years of growing up. We had a small family, my mother had one sister and my father had two sisters.
