Domestic abuse affects one in four women and one in six men and can impact on anyone, regardless of background.  Victims are not responsible for another person’s abusive or controlling behaviour.  Any victim of domestic abuse has the right to be supported and to stay safe; the main support services (both civilian and military) are outlined in this section, along with some basic safety planning information.  There is additional information in the Other Information section that may also be relevant to victims e.g. Children and Young People, Foreign and Commonwealth, Common Concerns.
