PersonalDomestic violence

Domestic violence or domestic abuse in any form is not acceptable. Forms of abuse include emotional, psychological, sexual and financial and could come from a partner or member of your family.

Many people in this situation find it difficult to talk about their experience so we will do everything we can to help you take these first steps.

If you are the victim of domestic abuse or the threat of abuse, we can help you get an injunction to keep you and your children safe. An injunction is an Order of the Court which will:

  • Prohibit the use of violence or harassment
  • Exclude a violent partner or family member from the property in appropriate cases

We can also put you in touch with a variety of services that provide practical and emotional support.
