Over 100 cases of domestic abuse take place in Shetland every year, with 115 recorded in 2017-18. There are around 60,000 cases recorded in Scotland annually - that is one every ten minutes. Domestic Abuse affects people across our community regardless of sex, race, age, religion, sexuality, income or lifestyle.

Domestic abuse is unacceptable and you have a right to be safe. You do have options and there are people who can help you.
