Domestic abuse can have a devastating effect on individuals and wider families. We are here to help anyone suffering domestic abuse and are committed to bringing offenders to justice. We work closely with our partner organisations to provide help, support and guidance to those in need.
What is Domestic Abuse?
Domestic abuse is threatening, controlling, coercive behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, virtual, physical, verbal, sexual, financial or emotional) inflicted on anyone (irrespective of age, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or any form of disability) by a current or former intimate partner or family member.
Remember, you are not to blame for any abuse that is happening to you.
