What is domestic abuse?
Domestic abuse refers to physical, emotional or sexual mistreatment within an intimate relationship or a family. These criminal acts can affect men and women, regardless of sexuality.
As well as violence and rape, it includes behaviour that humiliates, threatens, isolates or controls the victim.
