Support for victims of abuse

 

 

The Carrero series is based on many forms of abuse. Childhood neglect, sexual, physical, and mental abuse, and touches on very many gritty topics. It touches on domestic violence in the home among other issues.

I am a huge supporter of the following charities and helplines, and wanted to bring together information for those who maybe do not know where to look. I am UK based so this is a UK list of numbers and will be happy to add USA and other regions if you contact me with helpful links.

Victim support

Child abuse   can happen in different ways, and can include neglect as well as physical, emotional and sexual abuse. In many cases, people experience more than one type of abuse.

Domestic abuse  – The UK government’s definition of domestic violence is ‘any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass, but is not limited to psychological, physical, sexual, financial, emotional.’

 Please do not suffer in silence, even if the abuse has stopped. Some of us can carry the scars from our past, long after we think we are free from the torment.
