Understanding the issues and impact of domestic violence

editorial image

The council is keen to hear from anyone who has been the victim of domestic violence in order to improve the way cases are handled and identify the support required.

It has also launched a Luton-specific website to help those experiencing domestic abuse or who are concerned about family, friends or colleagues.

There are special sections for adults, children and professionals with guidance tailored to particular needs

A community safety spokeswoman said: “It helps victims understand the effects of domestic abuse on themselves and others, and how to seek help to stop it.

“But remember that anyone who feels their life is in danger should always call 999.”
