Domestic abuse

Everyone has arguments, and everyone disagrees with their partners, family members and others close to them from time to time. But if someone’s behaviour is causing you to feel upset or afraid, then you may need support.

Domestic abuse means any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality. It can happen to both men and women and whatever form it takes, domestic abuse is rarely a one-off incident.

 

If someone has:

  • Stopped you from seeing your friends and family
  • Controlled your money
  • Destroyed your possessions
  • Unjustly accused you of having affairs or behaving badly
  • Threatened or hurt you or your children
  • Forced you to do something you don’t want to do
  • Is sexually abusive or has raped you

This may be an indication of domestic violence and abuse and you don’t have to continue to suffer.

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger call 999.
If you want to report a crime, call Crimestoppers anonymously 24/7 on 0800 555 111.
