You don’t have to put up with abuse.
Women and children who are affected by domestic abuse have rights under the law and there is support waiting for you if you need it.
If you are frightened for yourself or your children or concerned about someone else, there are things you can do to keep safe. National Womens Aid have produced a Survivors Handbook which gives easy to understand advice on every aspect of dealing with domestic violence, including how to keep yourself and your children safe, explains about your rights and the legal system, money and housing issues and also surviving after abuse.
