Anyone can be a victim of domestic abuse, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexuality or background.
There is a particular pressure in households during the Coronavirus outbreak but domestic abuse is unacceptable in any situation, no matter what stresses a person could be under, and this behaviour should not be tolerated.
