Domestic violence and abuse (DVA) is any intimidating behaviour, violence or abuse between adults who are or have been in a relationship, or between family members. The abuse can be physical, emotional, psychological, financial, sexual or a combination of these. Stalking, honour based violence, female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage are also forms of DVA.
