Usdaw has for many years sought to support members who are experiencing domestic violence and while the vast majority are women, it can affect men too. It happens in heterosexual and same-sex relationships.
Domestic violence affects people of all ages and races, from all walks of life and every social class. It affects many of our members and Usdaw is committed to supporting any member in this situation.
Usdaw believes domestic violence is a workplace issue. By working with employers to introduce workplace policies on domestic violence, we can change attitudes and help people who experience domestic violence to get the support they need.
