Domestic abuse is any type of controlling, bullying, threatening or violent behaviour between people in a relationship. It isn't just physical violence – domestic abuse includes emotional, physical, sexual, financial or psychological abuse.

It includes so called ‘honour’ based violence, female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage.

Anybody can experience domestic abuse, but nobody should. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, get help.
