If you have been abused, or fear you have, it can be hard to take the first step in seeking help – especially if you have tried to talk about the issue to friends, family or professionals and have not had a response that helped you.
This page lists mainly national organisations. Your local telephone directory, Citizens Advice Bureau or the NHS services finder may have more information on local organisations.
You might also want to read our information on abuse by health and social care workers, post-traumatic stress disorder and self-esteem.
