DOMESTIC ABUSE LINKED TO FOOTBALL

A recent study highlighted that domestic abuse increases by 38% when England lose a game.

When England win, the increase is 26%. 

For some, the prospet of match day is a fearful one.

The impact of domestic abuse is enormous and devastating.

Crimestoppers are appealing to family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and anyone who may have suspicions to speak out and help someone who could be a victim.
