Domestic violence rates in Hampshire expected to increase

Domestic violence rates in Hampshire are expected to increase over the next two years as police in Rushmoor are set to focus their efforts on raising awareness about the crime.

Officers in the borough have identified domestic violence and abuse as a widespread issue and will attempt to tackle it by working with hard to reach groups.

The police have identified teenagers, elderly and people in same sex relationships, as well as those whose first language is not English, as priority for focus in the area.

The aim is for people across the borough to know where to go when they need help as well as awareness of what constitutes domestic violence and abuse.

Nicola Whitley, head of Swain & Co’s domestic violence department says, “It is positive that police in parts of Hampshire are focusing on working with hard to reach groups of people who may be suffering from domestic violence and abuse.”

“It is essential that awareness is spread across our community, and people know that they do not have to suffer in silence.”

Nicola runs our domestic violence and abuse department, which offers a drop in clinic every weekday from 09.00 – 17.00 at 3-5 South Street, Havant.

We also have a 24/7 emergency text and call number so you can call or text us as and when you are able to on 07435 969798

Nicola’s message is, “Don’t suffer violence in silence; we are here to help you.”
