Domestic Abuse Awareness Campaign

Central Bedfordshire Council’s Domestic Abuse Team is running an awareness raising campaign to highlight the increase in domestic abuse when there are major sporting events’ with the World Cup now in full play, they want people to be aware of where they can access support should they be at risk as a victim or at risk of hurting loved ones.  Everyone should enjoy the football, whatever the result, without becoming a statistic of abuse, either as the victim or the perpetrator.  It is know from statistics that major football events, with the addition of increase alcohol consumption, can increase domestic abuse by 26% if the football team wins and by 38% if the football team loses.
