    What is domestic violence? 

    Simply put, domestic violence or abuse is when a victim is abused by those closest to them, usually in their household or relationship. This can also include abuse from family members and surprisingly parents can sometimes be classed as the victim of domestic abuse from violent children. Domestic abuse/violence often manifests as physical, sexual, or psychological abuse, but can show in any other form such as financial abuse.


    What is non-recent abuse?

    As suggested in the term itself, non-recent abuse is abuse that has occurred in the past. Victims of such abuse are at risk of suffering from long-term emotional distress. It is never too late to report non-recent abuse. If you decide a report should be made, the next step is to contact 101 (or 999 in an emergency) and explain the incident. The person on the other end of the line will connect you to the relevant department, and any necessary steps will be taken. 


    Coronavirus / Covid 19 isolation and lockdown rules:

    Due to coronavirus and the lockdowns enforced, those dealing with domestic abuse may find it very difficult to go about their lives and feel safe whilst doing so. In such cases where a victim seeks to escape domestic abuse, the current COVID-19 isolation rules are not applicable and can be overlooked. 


    How to report abuse:

    If at any point in time you find yourself or someone you know of being subject to such abuse, the next step is to report the incident to the relevant authorities. In an emergency or if you feel an individual is in immediate danger always call 999. You can also report a crime by calling 101 if there is not an immediate risk.
