Domestic Abuse

In England & Wales, 29% of women and 16% of men, have experienced domestic abuse at some point in their life. But because it happens behind closed doors, the problem is often ignored. The effects of physical and emotional torment can be far-reaching, having huge impact on the health of the victim and that of any children living in the home. Ceredigion Domestic Abuse Forum
