Statistics show that domestic abuse will affect one in four women and one in six men in their lifetime.
It’s vital we all know the signs of domestic abuse so that if you spot something that doesn’t look, or feel right you can find the help you need to report it.
It isn’t always physical signs such as cuts, bumps and bruises either: submissiveness, becoming withdraw or distanced from close family and friends can also highlight domestic abuse. For more information on how to spot the signs visit www.reducingtherisk.org.uk
If you, or someone you know are victims of domestic abuse, please speak to someone that can help you.
