For most of us when we think about domestic violence and abuse, a common image that comes to mind is that of a heterosexual relationship where the woman is the victim. However, it is important to recognise that men, same sex relationships, disabled people and family members are also the victims of abuse and domestic violence. Nobody has the right to abuse you and nobody deserves to be abused. Anyone can experience abuse regardless of race, ethnicity or lifestyle.
