The Pennine Domestic Abuse Partnership is a key provider of domestic abuse support for those subjected to, or at risk of, any form of domestic violence.
Domestic violence can take countless forms without discriminating against gender, sexual orientation, race, religion or ethnicity.
The most common misconception about domestic abuse is that it takes place between spouses or intimate partners and involves some form of direct physical endangerment or harm.
The reality is that domestic abuse can also include inappropriate or unacceptable treatment from family members, colleagues or friends and also encompasses psychological, financial and emotional abuse.
