Our very own Nikki and Gemma feature in this radio interview talking about coercive control and the affects this can have on a victim. If you listen to the interview, you will find out what coercive control is and what Next Chapter can do to help victims of domestic abuse.

The main topic of conversation is based around the BBC Three programme called 'Is This Coercive Control?' This is a great programme to watch to understand what coercive control is. Knowledge is key to creating awareness.

Sadly, many victims of coercive control will not even realise that they are being subjected to domestic abuse. Here at Next Chapter we have noticed an increase over lockdown of victims asking for help and reporting coercive control. 

Please know that if you are a victim of domestic abuse and coercive control, we are here to help - you're not alone.
