Domestic abuse

Domestic violence 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 anyone, and whatever form it takes, it is rarely a one-off incident.

Examples are (but not limited to):

  • Someone has stopped you from seeing your friends and family
  • Someone has controlled your money
  • Someone has destroyed your possessions
  • Someone has unjustly accused you of having affairs or behaving badly
  • Someone has threatened or hurt you or your children
  • Someone has forced you to do something you don't want to do
  • Someone has been sexually abusive or has raped you

 

Getting support

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger call 999.

Trafford Housing Trust has signed up to the Make a Stand pledge, a partnership between Women's Aid and the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance. As part of the pledge, housing associations can make commitments to support people who live and work in housing who are experiencing domestic abuse.

If you are experiencing domestic violence and need support with housing, you can speak confidentially to your Tenancy Sustainment Officer or report it us by contacting the Customer Hub.
