Domestic Abuse has a major impact on the health and welfare of many. The British Crime Survery 2006 reported that 1 in 3 women experience domestic abuse at some time in their lives. There are also many men who experience domestic abuse and experiences for men and women can either be in heterosexual or same-gender relationships.
In England and Wales, 2 to 3 women per week are murdered by their current or former partner.
Further advice and support including the DASH referral form and information regarding young people in abusive relationships is available on the GSCP website.
