Domestic Abuse Support
DVA Strategy 2021 - 2024
Domestic violence affects people of every class, age, race, disability, gender and sexuality. The violence can begin at any stage of a relationship and may continue after the relationship has ended.
Domestic violence can happen in many different ways, for example:
- Physical – hitting, punching, kicking, pushing, slapping
- Emotional – threatening to hurt the other person, doing and sayings things to frighten the other person, swearing at them or saying things to make them feel bad
- Sexual – doing or making someone do sexual things that they don’t want to
- Financial – taking away the other person’s money, not giving the other person money when they need it or not letting them get a job
