Domestic and family violence can take many forms and can affect anyone regardless of race, culture, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or economic status. It can occur between intimate partners, ex-partners and other family members.
Living with domestic and family violence can be overwhelming. Your health and self-esteem can be affected, you may feel that you can’t make good decisions or you may believe that the abuse is your fault. Older people and people with disabilities may feel particularly trapped and powerless, and may be afraid or embarrassed to tell anyone.
Things will not change if you don’t tell someone. Reading this information is the start of letting go of your fear and choosing a life free of abuse.
