Domestic Abuse

You deserve to be safe, happy and healthy in your relationships.

If you’re in a relationship where you feel unsafe, unhappy and unhealthy, or have ended such a relationship and are still experiencing abuse, we can help.

We offer support — including referrals to other agencies who can arrange emergency accommodation — and general advice and guidance.

Any acts of domestic abuse is a breach of tenancy and legal action will be taken if necessary.

Domestic abuse affects many people,
you may worry about reaching out or may not know if you are in an abusive relationship. Here are some tools that can help.

It is acknowledged that whilst it is predominantly women who experience domestic abuse, this support also applies equally to any other gender.

The abuse can include but is not limited to:

  • Psychological
  • Physical
  • Sexual
  • Financial
  • Emotional

Survivors rarely suffer just one type of abuse but a combination which systematically strips victims/survivors of their independence, confidence and self-direction.

Although every situation is unique, there are common factors that link the experience of someone who may find themselves in an abusive relationship.

  • Destructive criticism
  • Verbal abuse
  • Pressure tactics
  • Disrespect
  • Breaking trust
  • Being jealous
  • Isolation
  • Harassment
  • Threats
  • Sexual violence
  • Physical violence
  • Denial
