Teenage victims of domestic violence and abuse will be officially recognised as victims under Government plans, Nick Clegg will say today.
The Home Office is widening the definition of domestic abuse to include those aged 16 and 17 as well as a wider range of coercive or threatening behaviour, Clegg will say.
But campaigners warned that more funding is urgently required to help support the highly vulnerable victims.
A Young People's Panel will be set up by the children's charity the NSPCC to work with Government on domestic violence policy.
