Invisible, Alone, Isolated.

As a result of suffering Domestic Abuse or Violence, these are the things we hear.

We need to reassure families that they are not alone, and that there is help available.

It is a recorded fact that there have been more reports of Domestic Abuse during “lockdown”

Therefore we know that children in these households will also have seen, heard or even become involved in this abusive behaviour.

There is a recent report “The Perfect Storm“that explains this in more detail.

Just imagine, how someone explains to you that the person they should feel most safe with, is the person they are terrified of.

There are still services available to help, both locally and nationally.

If you are working with a family or children where Domestic Abuse is happening, you need to tell someone.

If the adult is vulnerable, if the children need help “See Something – Say Something

If the risk is immediate – call the Police on 999
