Domestic Violence: Facing the challenges of Domestic Violence
Any violence or abuse that is used by somebody to control or obtain power over their opponent is classified as domestic violence. This can include physical, sexual, spiritual, psychological, verbal, emotional and financial abuse. All of this can be in the church, community and society. It’s a faceless evil that has eaten deep in behaviour moulding of our society. If you alter your behaviour because you are frightened of how your partner will react, you are being abused.
All forms of violence are against the law more so gender-based violence is against the law. If you are being abused please speak out and get in touch by phone, email or text
Supporting those who have experienced violence and abuse is at the core of everything we do here in imac working hand in hand with church leaders, community leaders and other charities in some cases. No matter what your experience in domestic violence, sexual violence, spiritual abuse, ‘honour’ based violence, forced marriage, FGM, human trafficking or modern slavery we are here to support/help you.
We run a range of specialist services to help survivors’ access safety and rebuild their lives. We understand each person’s circumstances and needs are different and that survivors need different services at different times.
