Domestic Violence - Now is The Time to Speak

Lets start with the Government definition of domestic violence -

"Any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality."

Whatever form Domestic Violence takes, it is rarely a one-off, it should be seen as a pattern of abusive and controlling behaviour through which the abuser seeks power over a victim. Typically abuse the behaviour tends to gwt worse over time. The abuse can begin any time, even after many years of life together. Domestic Abuse may start, continue, or escalate after a couple have separated and may take place not only in the home but also in public places.

The Domestic Violence has a traumatic effect   on those involved, including a partner's children who may see or hear incidents taking place.

At Ju Jits Rugby, we can help arm people with skills to help in a situation but the victim must seek help from an organisation that deals specifically with Domestic Violence. A long term resolution is critical.

Domestic Violence is a crime   and needs to be reported to the Police.

There are also several organisations you can contact   or help but here's a good place to start.

If you experiencing domestic violence or know of someone who is experiencing abuse and needs help and support.
