We know how hard it is to speak out about abuse, and disclosures may not be made to the police.

In trying to escape an abusive relationship or while remaining in one we come into contact with many services.

There are so many missed opportunities by services with lack of understanding and knowledge that many are missed or not given the right support.

1 in 3 women, 1 in 5 children and 1 in 6 men will experience domestic abuse at some point in their lifetime.
