Many people believe domestic abuse is only physical violence against a person but abuse can be emotional, sexual, verbal and controlling and coercive behaviour. Additionally it can include threatening and degrading behaviour and financial control.
This behaviour can arise in couple relationships or between family members. It can happen on one occasion or on a series of occasions.
It is important to note that due to the impact of coronavirus and being confined to our homes, many of us are isolated from supportive family, friends or organisations.
Additionally, some of us at home are experiencing an increase in abusive behaviour and/or violence. Domestic abuse has greatly increased since lockdown with an increase in calls and online requests for help.
