There are some truly frightening statistics about domestic abuse in the UK. For instance, one in four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime.
Each and every minute, one case of domestic abuse is reported to the police and perhaps most shocking of all, on average, two women a week are killed by a current or former partner.
With around three million women experiencing violence in Britain each year, it’s a significant national problem. Domestic abuse is devastating to individuals and their families and a constant drain on public resources.
