In 2011 the PSNI reported that they were responding to a case of domestic violence every 23 minutes. The police must attend to an average of 60 domestic cases per day in Northern Ireland. The cost of domestic violence to Northern Ireland is up to £180 million per year.
One in four women in Northern Ireland have at some point in their life been a victim of domestic violence. 30% of all domestic violence starts during pregnancy. 5 women a year are murdered as a result of domestic violence.
A study of 108 mothers who had been the victim of domestic violence in Northern Ireland uncovered the following statistics: 90% of children in these homes were aware that violence was occurring. 75% had witnessed violence at home. 27% had been physically abused themselves by the violent partner.
Domestic violence against men is at its highest level of all time in Northern Ireland. Domestic violence against men has increased 40% in the last 9 years. From 2012-2013 the reporting of these cases increased 25%.
Domestic violence is something that occurs behind closed doors, often without anyone outside of the situation knowing. But it IS happening, and it IS a big problem here in Northern Ireland. These statistics clearly prove that.
Without going into detail, I have recently benefited from Women's Aid's services.I’m asking that if you can spare even £1 for this amazing cause that you do so. It is a cause very close to my heart and one that helps so many others.
