It is estimated that almost two million people in England and Wales experienced domestic abuse in the last year (2016/17).
The CPS prosecutes all forms of domestic abuse and we encourage everyone to recognise it and report it.
How to report domestic abuse
If you are in immediate danger, call 999.
Call 101 for non-emergency enquiries.
Domestic abuse is a crime and should be reported to the police – there are also partner agencies who can offer you help and support.
