What is Domestic Abuse?
Domestic abuse is complex. It can go unidentified by agencies, families and friends, and even victims themselves. It can affect anyone, regardless of age, social background, gender, religion, sexual orientation or ethnicity.
Domestic abuse does not only occur between couples. It can also involve wider family members, including parental abuse by an adolescent or grown child. It can exist between older siblings, or the wider extended family.
