Healthy relationships for adults
Relationships are important and should be equal, supportive, safe and free from pressure or violence. In short, they should be healthy.
However, sometimes people don’t enjoy the relationship they’re in and feel under pressure to do things they don’t want to do or make decisions they don’t want to make. These relationships can be unhealthy.
In 2014 the police recorded over 64,000 sexual offences relating to intimate partner violence or abuse.
A full range of support services for people in South Gloucestershire, who are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse, are provided by Next Link.
