Domestic violence

Domestic abuse exists in every sphere of society no matter your age, gender, sexual orientation, financial status or culture. Domestic abuse includes physical assault, verbal abuse, emotional manipulation, and financial control.

We appreciate that you will need urgent help and can usually see you on the day you contact us. We will advise you about your options, which may include making an urgent application to court. We will also advise you on any related concerns about your children, property and finances.

Immediate risk

If you are at immediate risk of harm you should call the police.
It can be very helpful to take photographs and to notify your GP if you or the children have been injured.
It is important that you take any children with you on leaving the home in an emergency, even if you do not believe they are at personal risk.
