Domestic Abuse is a topic that most of us do not want to think about let alone talk about, but it affects every community at every level. You or someone you know may already have been impacted by domestic abuse as statistically it affects one in four women and one in six men over their lifetime. It impacts on 750,000 children each year in England and it costs the UK economy an estimated £66 billion pounds a year.
Would you know what signs to look out for? Would you know what to do if someone in your family or community needed help?
If the answer is no but you would like to know more then we would love to come and talk with your council members, give a presentation or just provide you with posters and leaflets for your community.
We would like to try and ensure those impacted by Domestic Abuse across the whole East Riding know that local services are here to help, give confidential advice and support. You can contact the following:
