Domestic Abuse - You Are Not Alone

If you have been affected by domestic abuse, help is here now.

The following short film is told in the words from a local domestic abuse survivor who has bravely helped us create this campaign.

Domestic abuse isn’t just between people in a relationship; ex-partners and other family members might put you at risk. Domestic abuse services are here to support men, women, trans people and children.

Services want to hear from you and are ready to listen and help and their contact details are below.

If you have spotted signs that someone is at risk of domestic abuse, we are ready to help.

It could be a friend, family member or neighbour. If you are worried about them, let us know.

For advice or concerns, support services are there to help. 

Domestic abuse isn’t just physical, it can be emotional, sexual or financial. Recognise the signs and reach out for help.

If you spot these warning signs of domestic abuse, they should be taken seriously. People who are being abused may:

  • Seem afraid or anxious to please their partner
  • Go along with everything their partner says and does
  • Check in often with their partner to report what they’re doing
  • Receive frequent, harassing phone calls
  • Talk about their partner’s temper, jealousy, or possessiveness

Clare's Law

The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme, known as 'Clare's Law' gives members of the public a right to ask the Police where they have a concern that their partner may pose a risk to them or where they are concerned that the partner of a member of their family or a friend may pose a risk to that individual. If police checks show that your partner has a record of violent behaviour, or there is other information to indicate that you may be at risk from your partner, the police will consider sharing this information with you.
