The term domestic abuse covers a range of abuses that can occur within the confines of a close relationship. Abuse can include:

  • Physical abuse - pushing, hitting, choking, kicking, biting, attacks or threats with a knife or other object
  • Sexual abuse - rape, sexual assault, forced participation in degrading or unwanted sexual activities
  • Emotional / mental abuse and control - verbal abuse, constant criticism, unjust accusations, humiliation, undermining self-confidence, cultural or racial taunts, smashing furniture, destroying clothes and personal possessions, withholding money, denial of opportunity to work or study, discouragement of seeing friends and family, dictating what to wear or how to behave, preventing from leaving the home

The domestic abuse team supports victims of domestic abuse and their children.

The team is part of the social work service - the outreach workers are social workers. The team also works with Police Scotland Domestic Abuse Liaison Officers, health, housing and Women’s Aid.
