“If your partner doesn’t actually hit you there is nothing you can do as the physical abuse is required for the authorities to take action “



This is a myth. Whilst in the past the term domestic abuse has been synonymous with domestic violence, domestic violence legislation covers much more than this.

Domestic abuse often includes domestic violence, but can also comprise psychological, emotional sexual and financial abuse, as well as coercive control.

It has often been the case in the past that, having taken the huge decision to report domestic abuse, victims have been let down, told there is no case or ‘come back when he hits you’.
