Violence Against Women and Girls
Women and girls often experience several forms of violence based on their gender including domestic abuse.
Several local organisations and agencies are working together to tackle domestic abuse and violence against women and girls across the region.
There are many local and national organisations that can help if you're suffering because of domestic abuse or other forms of violence.
There are a number of things you can do to help someone else who is experiencing violence or abuse.
Policy and Guidance for Professionals
Domestic abuse can take many different forms. It isn't always easy to spot abuse or victims of abuse but there are some common signs of abuse.
It's important to face up to how your abusive behaviour affects someone who is getting it as well as your/their family and friends. The more you understand what your behaviour is like for them then the harder it will be to behave like that.
Children and young people can be affected by domestic abuse at home or in their own relationships.
