Domestic Abuse and Child Removal

About this course:

This e-learning is for professionals working with mothers who are survivors of domestic abuse and have had children removed from their care, or are at risk of having children removed in future.

This course was developed by AVA as part of the Staying Mum project and draws on evidence from our peer research and literature review. To find out more, click here. 

This course contains information about domestic and sexual violence, child removal, child abuse, self harm and suicide.

This e-learning is designed to:

  • Provide an introduction to child removal through the family courts in England and Wales.
  • Increase your understanding of the experiences of domestic abuse survivors before, during and after they have children removed from their care.
  • Give you tools to support survivors who have had children removed, or who are at risk of having children removed.


It is hard to measure exactly how long completing this course will take due to different learning styles and where you take breaks. We want you to take enough time to absorb and reflect on the information we are presenting and ensure your emotional well-being while completing the material.
