Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse is not just physical or sexual abuse, it includes abusive behaviours, verbal, sexual, psychological or financial abuse and can be committed anywhere including online.

It is often about power and control, with abusers seeking to use complex controlling behaviours to frighten, humiliate and isolate victims from those who can offer them support.
