If you are experiencing domestic abuse, the best thing you can do is try to tell someone you trust, recognising that you are being abused is not easy. Look at our Recognising abuse page if you are unsure, recognising abuse is an important step towards change and you may need time to think about your situation.
Domestic violence is a crime
No-one has the right to be violent or abusive to another person. You deserve to be treated with respect and equality.
