What Is Domestic Abuse

The Home Office definition of a domestic violence incident is:

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

Living with Domestic Abuse comes in many forms:

Physical Violence
Controlling your Behaviour
Bullying
Isolation from family & friends
Financial Control
Sexual Control

The above list is not exhaustive but indicates the type of controlling behaviour that a
perpetrator may display.

Our aim is to listen, support and signpost men, women including LGBT live safely and without fear.

Domestic Abuse has a huge impact on self worth, self esteem and confidence where months and years erode the survivors mental and physical well being. Daisy Programme works with you individually or in groups to come to terms with your own situation and move on , in time, with your life.

Domestic Abuse is all about control, control by the perpetrator to keep you exactly where they want you.
