You have the right to love your life free from fear, violence and abuse.
Domestic abuse is about power and control and can involve physical, emotional , sexual and financial abuse as well as forced marriage and honor based violence. It is rarely a one-off incident and tends to get worse over time. You might feel frightened, humiliated and isolated.
Remember: you are not to blame and you are not alone.
Domestic abuse can happen to anyone regardless of gender, age, race, class, culture, disability, sexuality or lifestyle. It is acknowledged in Sheffield that men can experience abuse and women can be abusers.
