Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse is common in our society. It affects 1 in 5 women.

Domestic abuse is an incident or pattern of controlling, coercive, threatening, degrading and violent behaviour. It exists in all communities, all ages groups and in new or established relationships. It can be emotional, psychological, financial, sexual or digital.

“I did not know that this was a ‘thing’, that there were other men like him, that it was not my fault. I did not believe in evil, yet there it was.”

Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse is often hidden. If we know the signs of an abusive relationship we may be better able to recogise and respond appropriately.
