Life Events: Dealing with Domestic Violence
This page provides information and useful links to help with dealing with domestic violence.
If you are being assaulted, either physically or sexually, or are being threatened, by someone you live with, then you are a victim of domestic violence. You don't have to put up with it.
If you are experiencing, or someone you know is suffering domestic violence it is essential that you or the person you know seeks help and support as soon as possible.
There are many organisations that can help and provide support to people who suffer domestic violence.
There are a number of Women's Refuges that can help you deal with domestic violence, and Welsh Women's Aid support offers advice on how to escape domestic violence and abuse.
Although many organisations provide information and advice for women who are victims of domestic violence, it is understood that men can also be victims of domestic violence.
