What is Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse is when a partner or ex-partner hurts, bullies or frightens you. It is not acceptable but it is, unfortunately, very common.

But domestic abuse isn't just physical, it can also involve:

  • Coercive control
  • Psychological/emotional abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Harassment and stalking

Any type of abuse is wrong, and no one deserves it. The important thing to remember is that you are not to blame.
