Housing Options in Dundee - Domestic Abuse

What is Domestic Abuse?

Domestic abuse is when you are being abused, threatened, physically or sexually assaulted by a partner, former partner or family member where honour based violence is the issue.

As well as actual physical violence, domestic abuse can involve a wide range of abusive and controlling behaviour, such as:

  • Threats
  • Harassment
  • Financial control
  • Emotional abuse
  • Social isolation
  • Sexual exploitation

If you are in a relationship where you are being abused, you may feel frightened, alone and confused -but you are not to blame, no-one deserves to be abused.

If you are a victim of domestic abuse, you don’t have to suffer alone. There are people ready to listen, offer advice and support you.
