Increased Risk of Domestic Abuse over Christmas

Increased Risk of Domestic Abuse over Christmas

For most of us, Christmas conjures up images of crappy cracker jokes, sickly mulled wine and a haze of Christmas Parties.  But for others, Christmas is the most feared time of the whole year.  Domestic violence rises significantly during the festive period.  Not a year goes by when we don’t see a seasonal spike in incidents reported to the police.
As you’d imagine, the combination of financial pressure, free flowing alcohol and being cooped up in closed quarters exerts additional burden on relationships.  In an abusive relationship, this pressure is manifold.
If you are a victim of domestic abuse or know someone that is, there is help and support out there.
