Domestic abuse happens when one person hurts or bullies another person who is or was their partner or who is in the same family.
It can happen to people who are married to each other, who live together or have children together. It can also happen when a relationship ends. Although domestic abuse mostly happens between adults, young people can be affected by the abuse they see and hear, and they can be hurt or bullied as part of the domestic abuse between the adults.
If it is happening in your family you are not alone – domestic abuse happens in many families and there are people that can help you and your family.
Remember it is not your fault
