Domestic Assault

Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence or abuse, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexuality or background. Domestic abuse is not always physical violence. It can also include: coercive control and ‘gaslighting’, economic abuse, online abuse, threats and intimidation, emotional abuse and sexual abuse.

A physical assault is a crime and is more obvious to friends and family, and victims are more likely to seek help. Police officers have a duty to take positive action when dealing with domestic assaults and abuse incidents. Sometimes you could be a victim without being aware.
