West Mercia Women's Aid has welcomed the announcement that the legal definitions of domestic abuse will be broadened to include non-violent abuse, and will also apply to young people under the age of 18. The new guidelines come into effect in March 2013, and it is hoped that they will help raise awareness of domestic abuse, and also help ensure that more prosecutions are brought forward as a result.
