White Ribbon Week

At Breeze and Wyles Solicitors we are committed to spreading the message far and wide that Domestic Abuse is not acceptable.
Domestic abuse is physical, psychological, sexual or financial abuse that takes place within an intimate or family-type relationship and forms a pattern of coercive and controlling behaviour.
Everyone, whether male or female has a right to live a life free from violence. Abuse within the home still happens far more than you think; it’s just not talked about. Nationally, one incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute. However, a significant many more incidents are never reported. Victims are sometimes too afraid to speak out, ashamed or unaware of the assistance that is available. Sadly, some victims have been conditioned or brought up to believe that it is just to be expected. 
Most of the victims are women and it’s mostly committed by men. There is no excuse. It is a cancer within our society that must be tackled and White Ribbon Week is a week during which we join with other campaigners and domestic abuse organisations nationally to raise awareness and pledge never to COMMIT, CONDONE OR REMAIN SILENT.
If you are a victim of domestic abuse, or know someone who maybe, we can help. Call us on 01992 558411.
