Domestic Abuse: 16 days of action

16 Days of Action is a global campaign running every year from 25th November and strives to eliminate violence and abuse against women and girls around the world. We’ve supported the campaign in Leeds since 1999 and use it to raise awareness of all forms of domestic violence and abuse, and to encourage anyone affected by domestic violence and abuse to seek help. This year’s theme for 16 Days of Action in Leeds is recognising and responding to controlling and coercive behaviour. This behaviour can be part of a wider pattern of abuse. Coercive control is when a person with whom you are personally connected repeatedly behaves in a way which makes you feel controlled, dependent, isolated or scared. It is a criminal offence for someone to subject you to coercive control. You can report it to the police and if found guilty, it can lead up to 5 years imprisonment and/or a fine. If you or someone you know is concerned about coercive control, tell someone. For advice and support, call the Leeds Domestic Violence 24 hour helpline on 0113 246 0401.
