Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence

Home Office statistics suggest that, on average, one incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute.

Domestic violence accounts for 16% of all violent crimes and has more repeat victims than any other crime.

Statistics show that domestic violence effects one in four women and one in six men.

If you are in a relationship where you are subjected to domestic violence our Family Team could help you to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Domestic abuse occurs across all classes, nationalities, religions, cultures, ages, physical and mental abilities. It happens in all relationships including gay and lesbian. In a British Crime Survey in 2009/10 it was found that nearly one million women experienced an incident of domestic abuse each year. In addition to actual physical harm victims often experience complex associated feelings.
