Domestic Abuse & Violence
Domestic abuse and violence has a devastating effect on victims, their children, their families and the wider community. It is a crime and it is unacceptable at any level. It involves patterns of coercive, controlling or threatening behaviour and can involve physical, psychological, financial, emotional and sexual abuse.
Are you afraid of someone you know or live with?
No one should have to put up with any kind of violence or abuse. Everyone has the right to personal safety - so if you are worried then ask for help. If it has happened once it is likely to happen again. Even if it has been happening for years it is never too late to seek help.
