I am dependent on my perpetrator. How can you help?
It’s not uncommon for survivors to find themselves in a position where they depend on some form of support from their perpetrator, such as financial aid, housing, child support or even as a carer for someone with a disability. Being dependent on another person does not mean you have to accept mistreatment or abuse. If you are able to reach out or have a trusted relative or GP reach out on your behalf, we can start providing support. We can listen to your experiences and advise you on what your options are, whilst taking into account what additional support you may need.
