Freephone 24-Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline: 0808 2000 247

Run in partnership between Women’s Aid and Refuge

Tech abuse

Domestic violence takes lives and ruins lives, affecting one woman in four at some point in her life in England and Wales alone and killing two women every week.  Modern technology gives perpetrators an ever-growing arsenal of new pernicious ways to control, isolate, humiliate and dominate women using the tools of everyday life: a phone, a laptop, even a Satnav.

Power and Control

Sandra Horley CBE, Refuge chief executive, has launched a new edition of her ground-breaking book, Power and Control: why charming men can make dangerous lovers. The book shares the myriad ways abusive men control their partners, and the stories of women who escaped.

Define the line

Did you know that more than half of young women have experienced controlling behaviour in a relationship? Find out more about Refuge and Avon’s campaign to help young women ‘define the line’ between a caring action and a controlling one.
