Disabled victims the target of campaign
Domestic abuse in the spotlight
abuse is a serious problem and for some groups, such as the physically disabled, it is particularly poor.
“That’s why we need to publicise the helplines as widely as possible – and I’d ask everyone to promote them wherever they can.”
Sara, from Wycombe Women’s Aid, said: “People with disabilities are more vulnerable to domestic abuse and will often face additional difficulties in attempting to get help.
“Our teams understand that reporting abuse is never easy and can be even more challenging with a disability, but we’re here to give you the help and support you need. Please contact us”.
