Domestic abuse

Domestic abuse occurs when an individual suffers physical, psychological, emotional, sexual, or financial abuse by a current partner, previous partner, or an adult family member.

It can include violence perpetrated by a son, daughter or any other person who has a close or blood relationship with the victim/survivor.

Sufferers may experience a combination of abusive behaviour, for example:

  • physical violence;
  • verbal threats and put downs;
  • psychological and emotional abuse such as isolation from loved ones or humiliation;
  • sexual violence such as rape;
  • financial control such as withholding money.

Both men and women may suffer domestic abuse. It's important to remember that it's not your fault; its the abuser who has the problem - not you.
