Domestic Abuse

Relationship Abuse

  • Abuse is not normal and never ok. If you are in a relationship with someone, you should feel loved, safe, respected and free to be yourself. There are different forms of abuse but if your relationship leaves you feeling scared, intimidated or controlled, it’s possible you’re in an abusive relationship. Seek help from a family member, friend or trusted adult. If you are in immediate danger, get to a safe place and phone 999.
