Domestic violence victims are increasingly likely to be at risk of having their children being taken into care, according to Family Rights Group.
The charity also claims that victims are being failed as services to help women escape violent partners are being cut.
Crime Prevention Minister Norman Baker told the Guardian: "The Government is not cutting funding for domestic violence services. On the contrary, we have ring-fenced nearly £40 million to provide support for victims to escape abusive situations."
