Anyone can be a victim of domestic abuse, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexuality or background. There are different kinds of abuse that can happen in different contexts. The most prevalent type of domestic abuse occurs in relationships. However, the definition of domestic abuse also covers abuse between family members, such as adolescent to parent violence and abuse.
