Wondering why this is not getting more attention, or being treated more seriously https://www.three.fm/news/coronavirus/145-increase-in-domestic-abuse-calls/

Just seen this after being highly irritated by comments by Isle of Man Constabulary suggesting that lockdown is causing DA and issuing this advice to abusers: "Please be reminded that domestic abuse is unacceptable in any situation, no matter what stresses you are under."

Refuge@RefugeCharity

Domestic abuse is always a choice a perpetrator makes – isolation is not an excuse for abuse. Share if you agree.

Important and clear advice for everyone concerned someone is at risk of abuse #NoExcuseForAbuse https://www.cosmopolitan.com/uk/reports/a32154739/help-friend-domestic-abusive-relationship/

Can we get this to @Carole_King ?

276 members of our choir sing You’ve Got A Friend for @womensaid & help fight the domestic abuse that is increasing in this time of isolation.

1 in 5 children experience domestic abuse growing up, yet only some of them will have access to specialist support for children and young people. This is unacceptable. On #UniversalChildrensDay let's call for future MPs to pledge to #Invest2EndAbuse so no child is left behind.

Since Natalie Connolly was killed, these 12 other UK women and girls have been killed by men who claimed they consented to the violence.

They are among 59 women killed since 1972, and many more injured.

Light sentencing sends a dangerous message to perpetrators and makes our communities less safe. We owe it to the women who have lost their lives, and their families, to ensure that all perpetrators face the full force of the law. https://www.expressandstar.com/news/crime/2019/11/13/millionaire-who-left-girlfriend-to-die-to-appeal-lenient-sentence/

My mother, Sally Challen, was branded a cold-blooded killer. At last, she has justice.

The fact that society is ahead of the CPS in understanding domestic violence is a damaging indictment of the criminal justice system.

My comment for The Observer.

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/jun/08/my-mother-sally-challen-killed-my-father-finally-justice

No one can understand what I’ve been through to get to this point.

Mother and son separated for 9 years reunited and seeing justice.

Great work by the @StalkingUnit

Dave echoes the words I say on my #stalking training. Victims wake up wondering how they're going to keep themselves safe that day. They're so fearful they can't think past that day. Professionals need to understand this.
