Please support Citizens Advice’s Talk about abuse campaign.
Last year one in every 15 women, and one in every 33 men experienced domestic abuse at the hands of their partner or former partner. A quarter of women and just over a tenth of men have experienced this kind of abuse at some point in their adult lives.
Domestic abuse wrecks lives, harms children and creates huge social costs that fall on councils, local health services, the police and the wider community.
South Ashford Community Forum, therefore, welcome the coercive control offence that will come into effect later this month, as well as new efforts being made by the Government to tackle domestic abuse.
The Citizens Advice Talk about abuse campaign aims to help people to recognise the signs of domestic abuse among their friends and family, to encourage and equip people to sensitively and safely talk about the issue and help victims seek appropriate support. Please help this important campaign by pledging your support on Twitter:
