Cornwall is leading the way in helping young people hit by domestic abuse.

The government wants special programmes in schools.

Truro charity Clear tells Pirate FM it is already working in thirteen across the Duchy.

Spokesman Simon Carpenter says altogether they have helped 650 children in five years: "It is OK sometimes for relationships to go wrong. But it's how they go wrong and actually noticing that and knowing that they can say "No, this isn't OK for me" and to actually speak out about it.

"Through the program we've had lots of disclosures from young people living sometimes in abusive households and who have found the opportunity to come forward and talk to us. They can speak openly about it and it's a debate.  

"A lot of kids that we work with don't realise that they're witnessing or experiencing those things so it's about showing them that it's OK to be in a relationship but it's not OK to be in those types of relationships too."
