Support for those affected by domestic abuse

on Thu, 23/12/2021 - 5:30pm

If your partner, a family member, or a friend often twists your words, emotions or experiences against you, they could be trying to ‘gaslight’ you. This is a form of coercion and control, and is a form of domestic abuse.

Domestic abuse has increased during the pandemic and can become more of an issue at this time of year – if you have any worries, you can call Oxfordshire Domestic Abuse Service on 0800 731 0055 in total confidence, or you can call the 24hr National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 200 0247.
