Make your neighbourhood a pleasant place to be by refusing to catcall, shout at or comment on women in the streets on or public transport.
Domestic abuse is more common than you think: it affects 1 in 4 women in the UK and two women are murdered every week by a partner or former partner. As a neighbour, you are best placed to recognise the warning signs. It’s easy to think that it’s the business of the couple and not your place to interfere, but the woman could be at risk. It’s often best not to confront the couple directly; you can call the National Domestic Abuse Helpline if you have concerns.
