This page outlines the domestic abuse support services which are currently available to local people. This is particularly important for residents to be aware of during the Coronavirus outbreak, when people are being asked to stay at home for long periods of time to stop the spread of the virus.
What is domestic abuse?
It can be defined as: “Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality.”
