Unseen and unreported
Domestic abuse happens behind closed doors and is often unseen and unreported. One in four women and one in 10 men have experienced domestic abuse at one point in their lives and it’s estimated that in households where domestic abuse is a factor 90% of children will have been in the same room or next door to where the incident is happening.
Every six seconds
Domestic abuse has a higher repeat victimisation rate than any other crime. A victim of domestic abuse is assaulted every six seconds, however a complaint is made to the police every 60 seconds. On average someone will be assaulted 35 times before making a complaint to the police.
