About Us

What is Domestic Abuse?

Domestic abuse goes beyond violent behaviour and physical abuse. It also includes any type of sexual, psychological and financial abuse and is about a range of coercive and controlling behaviours. It also includes ‘honour based violence’, female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriages. Domestic abuse can happen in any relationship – regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or social class or income.

If you are being forced to change your behaviour because you are scared of your partner or your family member's reaction, it's likely that you are being abused.
