Support for Domestic Abuse Victims

 Wed, May 06, 2020

Lockdown has been an extremely difficult time for domestic abuse victims. Recently released statistics showcase a 49% rise in calls to abuse hotlines. 

Domestic abuse is a scourge that affects all demographics, young and old, and it doesn't just involve violence. The following actions are all considered abuse: Being hit, punched or kicked; being threatened; neglect;  emotional abuse;  imprisonment; taking your money; rape; sexual assault; controlling behaviour; talking about shame and honour of your family. 

Thankfully, there is a huge number of organizations, both big and small that can help abused individuals.

The NSPCC has launched a nationwide campaign promoting their helpline. If you are worried about a child’s welfare please call 0808 800 5000 which is operated by a team of dedicated professionals willing to help.
