Leeds Domestic Violence and Abuse

Domestic violence and abuse is a serious problem. It includes physical, emotional, sexual and financial abuse.

Physical signs such as injuries may be easier to recognise than the emotional forms of abuse.​

Abusers may limit access to finance, social contact or what a person may do in order to have control over them. Children who witness domestic violence and abuse will be affected in many ways.

It’s important that those affected by domestic violence and abuse are supported to make their own decisions.

It is not the victim’s fault.

One to watch is our 4 minute clip on the #WhiteRibbonLeeds campaign, which you can view on the right hand side of this page.

We reached over 110,000 on twitter and over 1,500 men made the pledge during the ‘16 Days of Action’ to… never to commit, condone or remain silent about men’s violence against women in all its forms - YES!!!

We encouraged men to think, question and reflect on their own or other men’s behaviours by asking #IsItOkLeeds

  • Is it ok if your mate’s always checking his partner’s phone?
  • Is it ok if your mate puts his partners down in public?
  • Is it ok to not do anything if you hear banging, shouting and crying next door?

These Qs sparked loads of conversations, across the city and in various locations ~ get comfortable talking about it.

Leeds retained its status as a White Ribbon City! So thank you all for the support and please keep the momentum going.
