It’s not just black eyes and bruises

"Domestic abuse does not discriminate in terms of the individual nor the form it may take. In the year ending March 2022, calls to the national domestic abuse helpline for those reporting the type of abuse they experienced revealed: 82% experienced psychological or emotional abuse​, 74% experienced controlling behaviour​, 56% experienced threatening or intimidating behaviour. Each year, nearly 2 million people in the UK suffer some form of domestic abuse. It is reported that 1 in 3 women will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime. Within the church context, it has been indicated that on average, individuals will experience domestic abuse within their relationship for a period of 6 years. The figures, taken from diocesan self-assessment key safeguarding data, show that reports of domestic abuse rose from 217 in 2019 to 297 in 2021; 21% of all reported safeguarding concerns relating to adults have been directly related to domestic abuse over the three-year period. In 2020 and 2021 domestic abuse was the most common reason for a safeguarding referral to be made to a diocesan safeguarding adviser about an adult."
