What is Domestic Abuse
- Domestic abuse is physical, emotional, verbal, psychological, financial or sexual abuse.
- It involves the misuse of power and control by one person over another.
- Abuse in the home is more widespread than people think. It affects men and women of all ages, ethnicities, orientations and income levels, regardless of ability
- Domestic abuse can affect the victim's housing, health, education and the freedom to live freely without fear.
Help with Housing
One of the many reasons that people remain in an abusive relationship is the fear of losing their home. The Housing Services staff at Waverley understand this and can refer to a Specialist Advisor who can talk through options as well as offer advice and advocacy in supporting victims through Housing processes. Please contact Annette Marshall on 01483 523020 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
