Domestic violence and abuse - new web page added
Tuesday 20 August 2019 2.28pm
We have just added a new page to the website which provides information about the prevalence of domestic violence and abuse in Herefordshire.
The 'hidden' problem of domestic abuse in rural communities has recently been highlighted in a report by the National Rural Crime Network.
It is estimated that in Herefordshire alone around 3,800 women and 2,100 men aged between 16 and 59 were victims of domestic violence and abuse in 2016-17.
If you are experiencing, or have been affected by, domestic violence or abuse, both the Domestic Abuse page of the main Herefordshire Council website and the Wellbeing Information and Signposting for Herefordshire (WISH) website provide information about organisations that can provide help or advice.
