Domestic violence statistics

1 in 4 woman and 1 in 6 men suffer from domestic violence in their lifetime.

3 women are killed every week in England and Wales by a current or former partner.

30% of all domestic abuse starts or intensifies during pregnancy.

83% of victims do not report the abuse to the police.

76% of women continue to experience violence post separation.

These are shocking statistics, please don’t suffer in silence. Even if you are not ready to leave just yet there is no harm in speaking to someone about your options.
