Protection from a Violent Partner
Domestic Violence can be in the form of physical or sexual violence but can also include psychological or controlling behaviour.
Citizens Advice Bureau defines Domestic Violence as:
‘Domestic violence covers a range of situations where one person in some way harms another person, with whom they have some pre-existing relationship. Domestic violence can therefore be one person physically attacking another or it may be another form of abuse such as pestering with phone calls, installing a lover in the family home, or putting superglue in the locks of the victim’s car doors. For the above actions to be counted as domestic violence, the victim and the perpetrator must have had some form of relationship, but they do not need to be heterosexual partners and they need not live in the same property.’
