Have you ever worried that someone is being abused by their partner?


If you have, you'll know how it feels.


Founded in 2013, The Empowerment Network UK has made it its mission to support the other people involved in domestic abuse.


We're here for the worried parents, concerned friends and anxious neighbours. We're here for police officers, IDVAs, therapists, and caregivers. If you're trying to help a victim of abuse, we want to help you.



Why help witnesses, or third parties, to domestic abuse?


Many people who have witnessed abuse feel powerless. They don't know how to help, or even if they can help at all. It's an awful feeling.


We believe that third parties to domestic abuse do have a powerful role to play.


Currently, many cases of abuse are not reported. The 'wall of silence' surrounding domestic abuse makes it difficult to spot. Third parties, on the other hand, often see what is happening behind closed doors. They have a chance to help where others don't.


By making sure third parties feel safe, supported and empowered to act, we not only stop domestic abuse from affecting their wellbeing too, but we also help ordinary people stop abuse.
