Your home should be somewhere you feel safe. If you are suffering from domestic abuse, however, it is often the last place you want to be.

Domestic abuse can leave a victim feeling ashamed, humiliated and scared. Abusers are often clever manipulators who can convince a victim that the abuse is all their fault or even that they are not being abused at all.

What is domestic abuse?

Domestic abuse is abusive behaviour which takes place in a domestic setting, usually within a marriage or relationship. A common mistake people make is to assume that domestic abuse is just about physical violence. This is not true. It can manifest as emotional abuse too, with behaviours such as constantly monitoring a partner’s whereabouts, banning them from seeing certain friends and family members and telling them what they can and cannot wear. Domestic abuse affects men as well as women and can occur within both opposite-sex and same-sex relationships.
