Don't Suffer In Silence is a project that is run by Communities Together. We help anyone who feels that they are suffering from Domestic Abuse. We have expertise in South Asian languages and our trained telephone staff can speak in Punjabi, Urdu, Pathwari, Arabic, Mirpuri and English. Our telephone line is confidential but we may have to report to the police any information which we feel will stop anyone causing themselves or others danger.
We are here to help, to advice or just to listen and we can put you in touch with statutory and non statutory services that are best suited to your needs.
This project is supported and funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, One Community Fund and Communities Together.
Domestic abuse can occur in any kind of relationship - between intimate partners, family members, people with additional needs and their carers.
There are different kinds of abuse, but it's always about someone having power and control over you. Some people need to use violence to control another person, but some people can gain that control through threats and manipulation. Anyone can be a victim of domestic abuse, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexuality or background.
If you answer yes to any of the following questions, you might be in an abusive relationship.
If you think you may be in an abusive relationship, there is help available.
If your partner has sex with you when you don't want to, this is rape.
If you feel unsafe then the first thing to do is call West Yorkshire Police.
