Due to the nature of abuse, many victims are often too scared to come forward. If you've been abused or are currently suffering abuse, we can offer advice and support. We can also provide information on any future action you may wish to take against your abuser. If you cannot make decisions on your own, we'll put in place measures to protect you.
