Domestic Violence

If you are being physically, sexually or emotionally abused by someone, please speak to someone.   There are lots of people and organisations who can help get you to a better place in your life.   They have helped thousands of others in a similar position to yours.   We know it takes courage to pick up the phone, but please consider giving it a go.    Your GP or the Practice Nurse are good people to talk to.  Please don’t think for a second that you’d be wasting their time or that there is nothing they can do – it is simply not true.  There is lots they can do for you.  But you have to make the first step.

There are other organisations out there to help you….
