Domestic Violence Awareness by shadowlight-oak Domestic Violence Awareness by shadowlight-oak
October is Domestic Violence Awareness month.

Domestic violence includes a range of behaviours: it can be physical, psychological, sexual or financial abuse. It takes place within an intimate relationship and forms a pattern of bullying and controlling behaviour.


1 in 4 women will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime many of these on a number of occasions.

1 in 6 men will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime

One incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute.

On average, 2 women a week are killed by a current or former male partner.

The British Crime Survey revealed that 19% of domestic violence incidents were reported to be male victims, with just under half of these having a female abuser.

Of those women who have been subject to domestic force half (48%) have also been subject to frightening threats and nearly half (41%) to emotional or financial abuse

Every 37.8 seconds, somewhere in America a man is battered.

Every 20.9 seconds, somewhere in America a woman is battered.

Every year, 1,510,455 women and 834,732 men are victims of physical violence by an intimate.
