What is Domestic Abuse

The government definition of domestic violence and abuse is: “any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass, but is not limited to: psychological, physical, sexual, financial, emotional.”

It isn’t always easy to recognise domestic abuse, even for those experiencing it first-hand. It often develops gradually over time. It can even start to feel normal and people can begin to accept the way they are being treated.
