What is Domestic Abuse?


Understanding Domestic Abuse

Domestic Violence is when your partner or any other family member abuses you emotionally, physically, sexually or financially. It can be one single incident or repeated abuse but usually it is a pattern of
behaviour. If you feel intimidated by or frightened of your partner to the point where you feel that you have to change your behaviour you may be experiencing domestic violence.


Sexual Violence includes child sexual abuse, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, prostitution, female genital mutilation, rape etc. Whenever it happened, whether repeated or a single incident, if it’s against your will it’s not acceptable. We are here to help.

If you feel that your partner is intimidating you, if you’re afraid that your partner’s reaction will be aggressive or if you have been affected by sexual abuse then pick up the phone and call Carmarthen Domestic Abuse Services on 01267 238 410.
