Why is this important?
1 in 4 women will experience domestic abuse from a partner or ex-partner at some time in their life.
2 are killed each week.
They may be our clients, colleagues – even family and friends.
Seeing the signs, offering a kind word and providing information on how to access professional support may change or save someone’s life.
