Opening Closed Doors

Domestic abuse is when a partner, or someone else in the family, hurts a person or makes them scared.
It can be very upsetting to think that someone is hurting a person you care about. The first thing you may want to do is to protect that person. But this could be dangerous. This leaflet tells you about ways you can do it safely. 
We know that more women than men suffer domestic abuse.  But it does happen to men too. 
If you see someone being hurt call the police on 999. 
The leaflet Opening Closed doors tells you more about domestic abuse and how you can help someone safely.
If someone is in immediate danger, call 999
