Support if you use abuse in relationships

We understand that it can be difficult to stand up and face the consequences of your actions. But just by admitting the problem, you are already on your way to creating positive change - both for yourself, your partner, and your family.

If you're using abuse or violence in your relationship, both the Wigan Borough Domestic Abuse Service and RESPECT provide confidential helplines offering support and advice - see contact details in the table below.

In an emergency situation, always call 999.
