Domestic abuse support

Domestic abuse affects the whole family. Don't suffer in silence, talk to someone that can help.  In an emergency, always dial 999.

Remember:

  • Domestic violence and abuse can be actual or threatened and can happen once every so often or on a regular basis
  • It can happen to anyone, in all kinds of relationships 
  • People suffer domestic abuse regardless of their social group, class, age, race, disability, sexuality or lifestyle 
  • The abuse can begin at any time – in new relationships or after many years together 
  • Children are affected by domestic abuse both in the short and long term
