Abuse in a relationship is never acceptable and can take many forms including: physical, psychology, emotional or financial. Unfortunately, often the only solution is to seek help from the law. This may take the form of Police intervention or an Injunction. If it is an emergency always call the Police.
If you suffer from domestic abuse you are not alone! Every minute in the UK the Police receive a call for assistance because of domestic abuse. And that is just the tip of the iceberg, because the majority of incidents go unreported happening behind ‘closed’ doors. Above all domestic abuse is cunning, often repetitive and destroys lives and families.
