Sadiq Khan – 2022 Comments on Child to Parent Violence

The comments made by Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, on 12 April 2022.

I’m determined to tackle all forms of violence in our capital and keeping Londoners safe will always be my top priority.

That’s why I welcome this major new research commissioned by my Violence Reduction Unit, which shines a light on a form of hidden harm.

It’s crucial we have a joined-up approach to tackling this issue because I want all Londoners, including parents and carers, to have confidence in reporting concerns so that services can intervene much earlier and provide the support families need and deserve.
