Domestic abuse isn't just about physical violence.
It covers all forms of physical, sexual, psychological and financial abuse, ranging from threatening behaviour and minor assaults to serious injury and sometimes death.
Domestic violence is a crime - it's not fair and it's not right.
But you're not on your own.
If you're a victim of domestic abuse or you know someone who is - there are people who can help.
