"Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass but is not limited to: psychological, physical, sexual, financial, emotional."
Women who experience domestic violence face many practical and emotional obstacles to leaving an abusive partner. These can vary from practical problems regarding housing, children and money, to emotional feelings such as love, fear and guilt. Constant abuse and criticism can also destroy a woman’s self-esteem.
Professionals seeking information on behalf of women experiencing domestic abuse can obtain help and support from our telephone line 020 8317 8273 or using the links below can refer women and children, who live in the Greenwich Borough, to our floating support and women and children from anywhere in the UK to our refuge services.
