Types of Abuse

Domestic Abuse and family abuse are not defined as clearly as we would like to think.  Speaking recently to a local police force in Lancashire their view of Domestic Abuse can only occur between partners, ex partners or a child abusing a parent/carer but it is not child abuse.  Some would domestic abuse is any type of abuse within the domestic/home setting.  We have split the categories into a number of type of abuses.

  1. Abuse  inflicted by one person against another can include:
  2. Abuse by a family member
