Am I being abused?

Am I perpetrating domestic abuse?

I'm  abusing someone else and I want to change


 Partners from across the Merseyside Resilience Forum (MRF) are working together to promote local and national support services for anyone experiencing domestic abuse, with a focus on the new challenges brought by Coronavirus.

The new campaign is an adaptation of the Government's recent domestic abuse initiative #YouAreNotAlone, which launched due to increasing concern about victims needing to self-isolate at home alongside their perpetrators.

Measures announced over recent weeks to tackle coronavirus (COVID-19) have seen people's day-to-day life be drastically altered. These changes are essential to beat coronavirus and protect our NHS. But we know we have vulnerable people living in our communities who will be additionally concerned about the prospect of staying at home for a number of reasons - including those who have been the victims of domestic abuse.

Domestic abuse is unacceptable in any situation, no matter what stresses you are under. For anyone who feels they are at risk of abuse, it is important to remember that there is help and support available to you.

Call 999 if your life is in danger and you need immediate help.
