Welcome to Stockport Without Abuse.

Who are Stockport Without Abuse? We are a local charity who offer a range of services to help and support women, men and children who are affected by domestic abuse. Everyone has the right to live their life free from fear, violence and abuse. Sometimes it is difficult to know what is happening and you can feel confused and unsure about whether you are in an abusive relationship and the options available to you. You may feel frightened, humiliated and isolated.

What is Domestic Abuse?

Domestic abuse is about how people use their power to control someone in a relationship – it can involve physical, emotional, sexual and financial abuse as well as forced marriage and ‘honour-based’ violence. It is rarely a one-off incident and tends to get worse over time. If you think you are experiencing or have recently experienced abuse from your partner, ex-partner or a close family member or if you are being forced into marriage, we can help you.
