The Scottish Government defines domestic abuse as ‘any form of physical, sexual or mental and emotional abuse that might amount to criminal conduct and which takes place within the context of a relationship. The relationship will be between partners (married, cohabiting, civil partnership or otherwise) or ex-partners. The abuse can be committed in the home or elsewhere.
We can provide victims of domestic abuse with information on helpful services as well as supporting them to access these.
