JUST REACH OUT - domestic violence awareness

Domestic violence is a crime. It is violent, abusive or intimidating behaviour by a family member, carer or a partner to control, dominate or cause fear. It can be physical abuse, emotional, psychological, financial, sexual or other types of abuse. It can affect anyone in the community regardless of gender, sexual identity, race, age, culture, ethnicity, religion, disability, economic status or location.
