This information is for you if you live with your family, by yourself, or in a home for people with disabilities.

It is about support you can get if someone is violent to you. This means someone hurts you or your body.

It is also about support you can get to do with your body, sex, relationships and having children.

This information tells you about:
• What support you might need.
• What should happen when you get support.
• Your rights.
