What is Domestic Abuse?

Domestic abuse encompasses one or more of the following: sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, psychological abuse and financial/economic abuse. It involves controlling and coercive behaviour and it rarely happens just once – such abuse tends to worsen and occur more frequently over time.

If you are experiencing domestic abuse or the effects of abuse, call the helpline and someone will listen to you, help you make sense of your situation and put you in touch with the right service to support you. Alternatively you can email the helpline and let them know how and when it’s safe to get in touch with you.
