Difficulties with domestic violence

Domestic violence has a huge impact on our wellbeing and mental health and can be very difficult to talk about. We can often feel ashamed and that we are the only person this is happening to. Abusers often tell us that we are bringing it on ourselves and it is our fault but there are sources of help.

You can contact the police on 999. They are committed to addressing domestic violence. Every local area has what is known as a Sapphire unit.
