Domestic and Sexual Abuse

Abuse comes in many forms, including:

  • domestic abuse
  • emotional abuse
  • rape
  • incest and childhood sexual abuse
  • sexual harassment and intimidation at work and in the public sphere
  • commercial sexual exploitation, including prostitution, pornography and trafficking
  • dowry related violence
  • female genital mutilation
  • forced and child marriages
  • “honour crimes”

Women and children are most commonly the victims.  But men can also experience a range of these abusive behaviours. There are support agencies that can help.

You can find more information and details of who can help you in the links above.
