Citizens Advice

Following changes to the laws around domestic about in the UK, ComRes was commissioned by Citizens Advice to conduct polling among the British public to explore their understanding and experience of, and attitudes towards domestic abuse. ComRes interviewed 2,063 British adults online, with data were weighted to be representative of British adults aged 18+.

The research found that just 1 in 5 people (22%) think it is always easy to tell what counts as domestic abuse, and that people are more than twice as likely to say that domestic abuse can be psychological than financial, with only 2 in 5 (39%) aware of the financial side of abuse compared to four in five (86%) who are aware of the psychological side.

Citizen's Advice used the research findings in their report 'A link in the chain', which looks at the role of informal networks (friends, family, colleagues and neighbours) in recognising and supporting victims of domestic abuse.
