Support is available for everyone
Domestic abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, sexuality, background or socio-economic status.
However, there are also services that provide support for specific groups of people.
Advice and support is also available from Men's Advice Line.
You can contact Gallop, the LGBTQ+ charity, for emotional and practical support.
You can also contact METRO Charity.
Disabled people are disproportionately impacted by domestic abuse.
The GDVA is still a key point of call for support.
Metro Gad provides advice and information and advocacy for disabled people.
DeafHope is a domestic abuse service that provides practical and emotional support to Deaf people.
There is also advice for perpetrators, those who are abusing family members or partners.
If you recognise and want to stop your abusive behaviour, and want to develop healthy, respectful, non-abusive relationships, support is available from Respect.
