This research project investigated the experiences of young Tasmanians who had been abused by a partner when under the age of 18.

The project was initiated in response to consultation with service providers across Tasmania who identified teen domestic violence and abuse as a prevalent and culturally embedded problem for young people aged under 18 years, and observed significant gaps in support services and legal responses in this state.

The aim of the project was to:

  • understand the prevalence and nature of child intimate partner abuse (IPA) in Tasmania
  • understand the support and service needs of child victims of IPA in Tasmania
  • describe current responses to child victims of IPA
