“An estimated 2.1 million people in the UK suffer some form of domestic abuse each year – around 1.4 million women (8.5% of the population) and 700,000 men (4.5% of the population).1 In the 12 months to March 2015, the police service in England and Wales received more than 900,000 calls about domestic abuse – an average of over 100 calls an hour. Domestic abuse victims and their children are among the most vulnerable in society; domestic abuse accounts for 10% of all recorded crime... Each year, more than 100,000 British adults are at high and imminent risk of being murdered or seriously injured as a result of domestic abuse. Over 130,000 children live in these homes” Cry for Health, SafeLives, November 2016
