If you have spotted signs that your friend or family member is experiencing domestic abuse, the first thing you can do is reach out to them. Showing your support will be key in helping them leave the abusive relationship. Remember that it will not be easy for them to leave, they will have ties – emotionally, financially or otherwise – which can delay the process, and often their self-esteem will be so low they may not feel strong enough to break away at first.
If you want to speak to us, you can call our helpline on 0800 69 49 999 and we can give you advice on how best to support your loved one or how we can support you.
