First signs of domestic abuse

Abuse can be psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional and if any of these are going on, you or your family – or another family – may be facing domestic abuse. Victims can be of any sex, age, ethnic origin or sexuality. Controlling and bullying behaviour includes so-called ‘honour’ violence, female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage.
