What is domestic abuse?
Domestic abuse is common. Although in most cases women are the victims, men can be victims too.
Children at home will be affected directly or indirectly by what they see or experience
If you think a child or young person is at risk of abuse, harm or neglect please call 0808 800 4005
This is a 24-hour service staffed by a team of professional people who will listen to your concerns and take appropriate actions.
Domestic abuse can be a single event or multiple occurrences of controlling, threatening, degrading and violent behaviour. This can include sexual violence. In most cases the abuse is by a partner or ex-partner, but it could be a family member or carer.
