Domestic violence and abuse happens to many women. It can affect any woman at any age and from any background. The person abusing you may be your current spouse or partner. Abuse can also continue after a relationship ends. The person abusing you may be another member of your family.
There is no excuse for domestic violence and it is not your fault if it happens to you.

Recognising that you are being abused is an important step. Where you go from here is up to you. You may feel you need time to think about your situation. Or perhaps you have already made up your mind to leave. Whatever you decide, your safety and that of your children is always the priority.
Helping someone else
Unless you are trying to help someone who has been very open about their experiences it may be difficult to acknowledge the problem directly. However, there are some basic steps that you can take to support to anyone you know who confides in you that they are experiencing domestic abuse.Learn more
