Do you know where you can get local help and support if you, a friend or family member is affected by violence and abuse in relationships? It is estimated that around 1 in 4 teenage relationships are abusive and boys, girls and those in same sex relationships can all be affected. The abuse can start with verbal or emotional abuse and can often escalate into physical. Some warning signs of potential and abusive behaviour include extreme jealousy, anger when time is spent with friends and family, putting the person down and trying to control their life.

There are dedicated websites which have a lot of information about signs to look out for and where you can seek help and support. www.direct.gov.uk/thisisabuse provides information for teenagers. Advice for parents/carers can be found at www.direct.gov.uk/spotteenabuse
