Domestic Abuse in Older Adults – ‘Eggshells’: a Short Film produced by older survivors who have experienced long term abuse, involving high levels of coercion and control
Domestic abuse is any kind of violence or other abuse between family members. This can be violent behaviour by a husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, partner, ex-partner, father, mother, son or daughter who lives in the same home or elsewhere. It may include physical, sexual, emotional or financial abuse. It can also affect the health and wellbeing of children in the family.
No one should have to put up with any kind of violence or abuse and everyone has the right to personal safety. If it has happened once it is likely to happen again.
Even if it has been happening for years it is never too late to seek help.
Domestic abuse includes physical, emotional, sexual or mental abuse.

Domestic abuse is when a grown-up threatens, bullies or hurts another adult in the house.
Domestic Abuse can happen in any family. It can be very hard to deal with but remember it's never your fault.
If this is happening in your home talk to a teacher at school or someone else you can trust and tell them what is happening.
