Relationship abuse (a.k.a domestic violence and abuse/dv&a) is perpetrated in all types of relationships. Research repeatedly shows that sadly, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will experience it in their lifetime.

Where relevant, follow up resources (including local service information and recommended websites) are also provided, as well as copies of the presentation and activity materials.
