What is abuse?

There are many different types of abuse. It can be emotional, physical, sexual or financial. It can be inflicted by anyone. It can take place anywhere, in person or online. It can be words, actions, or both.

Whatever the abuse is, it is time for it to stop and all of us have a part to play in ending it. This website talks about abuse towards women and girls, as they are at disproportionate risk, but the support offered here is available to all victims across the West Midlands.
