“You’re not alone!”

Government statistics show that one

in four women and one in six men will

experience domestic violence at some

time in their life. This shows it is more

widespread than many believe.

Who does it affect?

Anyone can be affected by domestic violence regardless

of their age, race, gender, sexuality, disability or religion and

it can vary in degree and frequency. It usually happens

between two people who are in a relationship now or have

been in the past, but it may also involve children or other

family members.

Are you experiencing domestic violence?

Domestic violence takes many forms. It may (or may not)

include physical or sexual violence. The damaging effects of

controlling behaviour are well known and domestic violence

may occur through regular abusive behaviour. This can include:

• Threatening behaviour or disrespect

• Emotional abuse or destructive criticism

• Restricting where you go, who you have contact with or

what you say

• Controlling your money,

• Constant denial that any abuse is taking place


Getting help

Domestic violence rarely occurs only once. Research

shows that the abuse tends to increase over time so it is

important you get help. Your library, local council or Citizen’s

Advice Bureau will have information on local and national

organisations that can help and we have included contact

details of the main ones in this leaflet.

What can you do to help?

We are trained to see the signs and help people experiencing

domestic violence, and we do all that we can to help you.

We will always deal with you sensitively and with respect, to

discuss the various options available to help you and your

family. These could include:

• Helping you to find safe accommodation

• Helping you to get money to improve the security of your

home

• Advising you of the action the Police may be able to take

• Explaining any legal action you could take and what action

we can take to protect you and your family

• Providing you with the details of specialist support and

advice organisations

We run three refuges in the London boroughs of Merton and

Wandsworth, primarily for Asian women and their children

fleeing domestic violence and abuse. This service can be

accessed by women nationally through Women’s Aid (see

contact details on page 4)


What other organisations can help?

There are a range of organisations that can help you so you

don’t need to feel alone or suffer in silence. We have included

some useful telephone numbers and details of websites.
