No-one should live in fear of abuse or violence from a spouse, partner or any other member of their household. Domestic abuse affects the whole family. Don't suffer in silence, talk to someone that can help.
- Domestic violence and abuse can be actual or threatened and can happen once every so often or on a regular basis.
- It can happen to anyone, in all kinds of relationships.
- People suffer domestic abuse regardless of their social group, class, age, race, disability, sexuality or lifestyle.
- The abuse can begin at any time – in new relationships or after many years together.
- Children are affected by domestic abuse both in the short and long term.
In an emergency, always dial 999 - if you are unable to speak always press '55' when prompted to confirm an emergency.
