Speak out against domestic abuse

A campaign to raise awareness of domestic abuse was launched yesterday by Thames Valley Police in partnership with Domestic Abuse Co-ordinators and Crimestoppers.
The aim of the campaign is to increase awareness and promote early intervention in an attempt to break the cycle of abuse.
The majority of domestic abuse still goes unreported and the focus of the campaign is to encourage people to contact either the police, Crimestoppers or specialist support agencies. 
The campaign is urging family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to come forward and let the police or other agencies know if they suspect someone is being abused.
A dedicated website speakouttoday.co.uk and video has been launched to provide practical information for victims and those supporting them, and includes vital links to national and local support services.
Further information on domestic abuse can be found on the Thames Valley Police website http://www.thamesvalley.police.uk/
