TheCoupleConnection is not a domestic abuse helpline or charity. However, time after time, our users will mention that there have been instances of domestic violence in their relationship and we need to signpost them to external sites for further help and support.

If you are suffering from domestic violence, or you know someone who is, the below list of organisations could prove useful.

If you are a woman worried about domestic violence

If you are a man worried about domestic violence

If you are worried about the impact of domestic violence on your children

If you are a perpetrator of domestic violence

    Good sources of help, thank you - and good to see that you recognise that men can also be subject to domestic violence and may need help and support.
