Child to Parent Abuse Guidance


This local guidance was designed to complement national guidance and inform organisational and multi-agency responses to Child to Parent Abuse (CPA) in Sandwell. This kind of abuse can also be known as Adolescence to Parent Violence and Abuse (APVA) or Child to Parent Violence and Abuse (CPVA) but for this document it will be discussed as Child to Parent Abuse (CPA).

The Child to Parent Abuse (CPA) guidance is now available on the SMBC Website through the following link:

The guidance will be officially launched on 16th February at the Safeguarding Today event, and then will be discussed at a further event in March.
