When I worked in the City no one ever talked to me about domestic abuse. Now, a week does not go by that a friend does not ring me for advice about how to find help for their daughter, sister or close friend. Most recently I was called by a friend who wants to help an elderly neighbour who, having finally divorced her abusive husband, is now suffering violence and abuse from her grown-up son. My friend asked if I could find a local support service that she could speak to. Easy I thought.
