Domestic abuse

Domestic abuse is when someone close to you, often your spouse or partner, causes you physical, sexual, social, mental, financial or emotional harm. The violence and abuse can be actual or threatened and can happen once every so often or on a regular basis. It is not necessary for there to be physical violence for domestic abuse to be serious.
