On this page you will find information on where to go for help, information about Clare’s Law and the the Defence domestic abuse strategy and policy:

Domestic abuse can, and does, happen to anyone. It is indiscriminate of age, gender, race, profession – including the Armed Forces.

Domestic abuse is defined by the Government as:

“any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass, but is not limited to psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional abuse”.
