Break the routine

On average, high-risk victims live with domestic abuse for over two years before getting specialist help. 1.9 million people experience domestic abuse every year, and almost two people a week are killed by their current or former partner.

Domestic abuse can affect anyone and doesn't have to be violent - emotional abuse can be just as traumatising. 

There is a way out. Organisations like Victim Support can help you move beyond the impact of abuse, and find a way to move forward. Our support is free and confidential for anyone in England or Wales, and you don't need to report a crime to get our help. If you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland, you can contact Victim Support Scotland or Victim Support NI. There are also other organisations that can help you if you've been affected by domestic abuse.

Help us raise awareness of the impact of domestic abuse and the support available for anyone affected.

Share our exclusive video, using the hashtag #breaktheroutine. The video features award-winning talent, including a previously unreleased soundtrack by Ellie Goulding, and was created by J. Walter Thompson London in association with Victim Support and the National Centre for Domestic Violence (NCDV).

You can read more about the creation of the film and the campaign in our press release.
