Types of Abuse

Both domestic abuse and child sexual exploitation are forms of abuse which are both against the law and extremely traumatic for those affected.

As we explain the various types of abuse, it is important to remember that in an abusive relationship, various abuse might occur; one is not worse than another or makes less of an impact on an individual.
