Legal protection from domestic violence

Domestic violence and abuse is becoming more prevalent each year. This may be due to people becoming more aware of abusive situations or that more victims are plucking up the courage to report the abuse they’re being subjected to. Our infographic provides an outline of the different types of abuse, the scale of the problem – along with some myths debunked and the legal action which can be taken against the perpetrators. Our self-help guide can be the start pointing to not suffering in silence.

We’ve also included some charities and support groups who will be able to assist you. Being the victim of abuse is frightening to say the least but remember you have human and legal rights, so use them and put an end to the abuse you’re suffering!
