Domestic violence means any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who are or have been in an intimate relationship, regardless of gender or sexuality.
It can happen to anyone, and whatever form it takes, it is rarely a one-off incident.
Signs of an unhealthy relationship:
It is a crime for someone you know to abuse you in your own home or anywhere else — whether they are your partner, a family member or someone you share your home with. Whatever the person abusing you might say, physical and emotional violence like this is never your fault.
Getting emergency support
If you are in immediate danger call 999. The police will treat this as a silent call. If you can, make yourself heard by coughing, tapping the handset or once prompted by the automated system - by pressing 55.
If you are a neighbour and are worried about a violent situation in your community, 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 to us by contacting the Customer Hub.
