26 Domestic Violence, Abuse and Harassment
10. How can I help someone who is being abused?
If someone you know is being abused, you can give them this leaflet or the leaflet produced by the Home Office called 'Violence, Financial Control, Emotional Abuse', which has advice on dealing with abuse. See 'Further help' for details.
You should try to be supportive and understanding. Give the person time to talk and to work out whether they want to take action to stop the abuse. They may not be ready to take action yet. Any choice needs to be theirs. You may be able to offer practical help, such as the use of your phone, or post sent to your address. Don't put yourself in danger - call the police if you think your friend or their children are at risk.
This leaflet is published by the Legal Services Commission (LSC). It was written in association with Imogen Clout, a solicitor specialising in family law.
