6.18 Responding to Children and Young People who are at Risk from Domestic Violence and Abuse – Policy and Guidance for Professionals

Gender language in procedures

Please note that throughout the domestic abuse documents perpetrators are generally referred to in the masculine and the term ‘mother’ is used to refer to the non-abusive partner. This gender specific language is based on research and reflects the majority of cases. However it is important to recognise that it does not always apply – males can be victims and females can be perpetrators – and the terms should be read flexibly
