Is someone you know being abused in a relationship?  A guide for families, friends and neighbours.

Your support can make a difference.

It can be really worrying when someone you care about is being hurt or abused by their partner. This guide will provide you with practical information on how to help, and how to look after yourself.

This guide will help in supporting female and male victims of abuse. Throughout the guide we refer to the victim as 'she' for simplicity and because the majority of victims are women, however we encourage supporters of men who are being abused to use this guide.

You can contact the services listed at the back of this pamphlet to speak to someone confidentially about your concerns.
