What is

Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse, which is sometimes called domestic violence, is any abuse that happens in a family or personal relationship where one person has power and control over the other. It is never ok.

There is no excuse for domestic abuse

“Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behavior, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass, but is not limited to psychological, physical, sexual, financial, emotional.”

Each year around 2.1m people suffer some form of domestic abuse - 1.4 million women (8.5% of the population) and 700,000 men (4.5% of the population)

Despite feelings of isolation, statistics show you are not alone – if you need help, you can find it here.

It takes, on average, 7 attempts before a victim of domestic abuse is able to leave for good.

Whether you are looking to speak with a support worker to seek some advice or you are ready to plan your safe exit. We can support you every step of the way and encourage you to make your own decisions to determine your own future.

Domestic abuse is linked to depression and homelessness.

We offer therapeutic services, emotional support & housing advocacy, including support to safely remain in your own home.
