Domestic violence and abuse
Domestic violence and abuse happens in the home. When a family member, current or former partner is violent or abusive to you, you’re experiencing domestic abuse. It can involve physical contact, verbal or emotional abuse and threats to harm or kill you. Men and women experience domestic violence and abuse.
Women’s Aid is the lead voluntary organisation in Northern Ireland addressing domestic and sexual violence and providing services for women and children.
Are you being pressured to get married against your will? Do you fear to bring shame or dishonour on your family? Have you been emotionally or physically abused? Are you confused about what they say scripture demands of you? Do you worry about being disowned?
