Domestic Abuse can be perpetrated in many different ways. These actions fall into the categories of physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, psychological abuse, and financial abuse.
Below are some examples of what may constitute abusive behaviours. This list is not exhaustive.
You do not have to be experiencing all of these categories, the behaviours are different in every situation and can change over time.
If you are experiencing any of these, or any other form of abuse, then please contact us for practical local support. We can help you and your children stay safe in your own home, support you to access specialist legal advice, help you with other agencies (eg Benefits and Housing), and, If you cannot stay at home, we can help you find a Place of Safety.
