Domestic Abuse: Support in Sefton during the 2024 European Championships

Domestic Abuse: Support in Sefton during the 2024 European Championships

Research from the National Centre for Domestic Violence during the football World Cup in 2022 revealed that domestic abuse incidents rose significantly regardless of the outcome.

The heightened emotions and potential alcohol consumption often associated with the sport can exacerbate tensions at home, leading to an increase in abusive behaviour regardless of gender.

There is no justification for domestic abuse. While watching football does not cause abuse, it can act as a trigger in relationships where abuse is already present.

Detailed information on available services in Sefton can be found here: Domestic Abuse (sefton.gov.uk). Alternatively, you can visit 'I Need Help' area of our Partnership website, found here - Sefton Safeguarding Adults Partnership Board (SSAPB) - Domestic Abuse (seftonsab.org.uk). 

It’s important to keep in mind that domestic abuse can affect anyone regardless of their gender, age, sexuality, ethnicity, socio-economic status, religion, or culture. Please do not suffer alone, there are several services in Sefton ready to offer support.
