Domestic Abuse Posted or Updated on 3 May 2023

Men can be victims of domestic abuse too.  Men make up 75% of suicide deaths. www.andysmanclub.co.uk is a national charity which looks to support men.

For local mental health support please contact Lincolnshire’s 24/7 mental health helpline 0303 123 4000 #itsokaytotalk #16daysofaction.

One in six older people experience abuse.  If you are experiencing abuse or if you are concerned about an older person who is at risk please report a safeguarding concern to 01522 782155.  For support please contact www.wearehourglass.org, they have a 24/7 helpline 0808 808 8141.

Living in a rural area like Lincolnshire, can mean you are isolated, making it easier for abuse to become unnoticed.  The NRCNs latest report highlights that abuse lasts 25% longer. LRSN - Lincolnshire Rural Support Network - can provide support to families connected to rural/agricultural and associated industries.

Denial is a tactic used by domestic abusers to coerce and control their victim.  It's ALWAYS the fault of the abuser.  You don't deserve it. You deserve better.  Call Lincolnshire Police on 101 (999 in an emergency). National Domestic Abuse Helpline 0808 2000 247.

If you or anyone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, and you’re concerned about reporting it to the police; you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, this is 100% anonymous. www.crimestoppers-uk.org
