  • Advice

    You may be concerned about reporting an assault carried out by a family member or someone you are in a relationship with. However, it is important to remember that reporting such instances is vital for your safety and the safety of others. Always remember some people can help you, and keep you safe. If the assault took place at your home, police officers can find you a safe place to stay. By speaking out, you could prevent this from happening to somebody else, or the assaults becoming worse.


    If, by reporting the assault to the police the assailant is charged then this will obviously have repercussions, which in turn could change their actions from passive to aggressive. If you are in danger then, if possible, get to a public place and call the police to take you to a place of safety.


    At Lestons we appreciate that there are significant cultural differences between the religious and cultural organisations in the UK. In some cultures, if a woman becomes pregnant via rape it is deemed her “fault”, not the rapist themselves, “honour killings / beatings” are rarely reported, if the matter is reported to family they may “sort it out themselves”.
