Supporting survivors of domestic abuse
Every day, people suffering domestic abuse find the strength and courage to leave their abusive relationship.
If you're suffering any kind of domestic abuse, whether it's physical, emotional, financial, sexual or psychological, there are many organisations working together in Nottinghamshire who can help.
What is domestic abuse?
Domestic abuse is any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between adults who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality.
It also includes financial abuse, social isolation and issues of concern to black and minority ethnic and refugee communities, including ‘honour based violence’, female genital mutilation and forced marriage.
Here you will find answers to frequently asked questions on domestic abuse, the services and support we can offer to you and how others have survived and moved on from abusive relationships.
The White Ribbon campaign
Nottinghamshire Police supports the White Ribbon Campaign which calls for an end to domestic abuse in all its forms by encouraging men everywhere to be one of the men who will never, ever allow domestic abuse to happen unchecked. You can make your pledge online via the White Ribbon campaign website.
