Domestic Violence Services
Domestic violence can be any physical, sexual, psychological or financial violence that takes place within an intimate or family-type relationship and that forms a pattern of coercive and controlling behaviour. It can also include forced marriage and so-called 'honour crimes'.
Anyone can experience domestic violence regardless of ethnicity, religion, class, age, sexuality, disability or lifestyle. Domestic violence can also occur in a range of relationships including heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender relationships, and also within extended families.
Domestic violence includes a range of abusive behaviours, not all of which are in themselves inherently 'violent'.
