This section gives you advice and information about domestic abuse and what you can do about it.
Cambridgeshire Constabulary uses the Government definition of Domestic Abuse, which is "Any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults, aged 18 or over, who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender and sexuality"
If you, or your children, are in physical danger from an abusive partner or family member, call 999 and ask for the police.
If you are a victim of domestic abuse, please remember it is not your fault. Domestic abuse is a crime, and it is something Cambridgeshire Constabulary takes extremely seriously.
For further advice contact the National domestic abuse Helpline on 0802 2000 247
www.famouspeople.org.uk is an excellent website that the Scottish Government has developed which explains many of the elements of Domestic Abuse and how you can protect yourself from it. Bear in mind that although much of the information on the site is applicable to all victims of Domestic Abuse, both the helpline and the legal advice are specific to Scotland. Therefore, if you need legal guidance or advice, either ring the National domestic abuse Helpline (as above), or visit one of the sites mentioned in the section Other Support Services
