You are not alone
Domestic abuse knows no boundaries; it can happen to anyone whatever their age, race or whether they are rich or poor.
Many adults think that children and young people don't know that domestic abuse is happening. However, we know that 90% of children and young people are in a room close by. If you don't see it, you can still hear it. Sometimes you might be hurt directly by the person who is abusive.
If someone in your family is abusive, remember that it's not your fault and you are not alone. Domestic abuse happens in many families and can also happen in your own relationship with your boy/girlfriend. You are not alone and there are people that can help you.
