Captive & Controlled – Domestic Abuse in Rural Areas
The National Rural Crime Network is revealing a shocking picture of domestic abuse in rural Britain with hidden victims – isolated, unsupported and unprotected – who are being failed by the system, services and those around them.
The results of an 18-month intensive research project, the study has analysed available evidence, spoken in depth to victims of abuse, assessed local support services and looked at the approach of the police.
Its findings are stark, disturbing and lead to an urgent call for action from government, the police, society and us all.
