What is domestic abuse?

For some people, abuse begins with physical violence; for others it may be psychological. However, in most cases, the different types of abuse combine and escalate over time and become increasingly dangerous.

Often, the person experiencing abuse is unable to articulate exactly what is happening to them. This is why it is important to understand what is meant by domestic abuse and what you can do to find the right support and help.

For further information on the different forms of abuse:

Domestic abuse affects all social classes, cultural backgrounds and types of relationship - heterosexual couples, same-sex couples and other LGBTQI+ relationships.
