Domestic abuse is the physical, emotional, sexual or financial abuse of someone you have a close relationship with. This may or may not be your partner.

Get the help and support you need to leave the person who is abusing you- you do not have to deal with this on your own. 

Domestic abuse is recognised as a reason for priority housing and in the short term, you and your children could stay:

  • With friends or relatives if it is safe to do so
  • In a refuge
