There is no place for threats and violence in true love.
Abuse in close relationships means being subject to harassment, control, threats and/ or physical violence from someone you love or are in relationship with.
If someone is frightening you or doing things you have not agreed to, stopping you from living your life the way you want to, or if someone is hurting you or talking degradingly to you, then you are subject to abuse/ violence in your close relationships.
Every year more than 40.000 men and women get in touch with shelters in this country. They either ring or drop in for a talk. If you need a safe place to stay for a while, please contact us.
Everyone working at the shelter has taken an oath of secrecy. We can get in touch with interpreters if necessary.
All help is free of charge.
