Domestic Violence Support
Domestic abuse is any type of controlling, bullying, threatening or violent behaviour between people in a relationship. It isn't just physical violence – domestic abuse includes emotional, physical, sexual, financial or psychological abuse. It includes so called ‘honour’ based violence, female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage.
Anybody can experience domestic abuse, but nobody should. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, help is available.
Accord runs a number of domestic violence services, if you need support please contact Sahdaish Pall our Domestic Violence Service Manager on 07977 426580 or firstname.lastname@example.org
