Kick Domestic Violence into touch
St.Helens Council is looking to kick domestic violence into
touch, ahead of the Saints clash against the Catalan Dragons
Due to drinking and high emotions particularly in the event of a
defeat, domestic violence sometimes increases during big sporting
It is estimated one in four women and one in six men will
experience domestic abuse in their lifetime which can include
threats, harassment, physical attacks, financial control and
St.Helens Council, along with Saints ace, Paul Wellens, is a
supporter of the White Ribbon Campaign, set up by a group of males
which encourages all residents to make a commitment never to
commit, condone or remain silent about domestic violence.
Victims of domestic abuse can contact the Independent Domestic
Violence Advocate on 01744 743200. There is also 24 hour support
available on 01925 220541.
People who are violent or abusive to loved can contact RESPECT on
0808 802 4040 for help.
