Domestic Abuse

Ocean believes no-one should live in fear of Domestic Abuse. We will take steps to assist and support any tenant or employee in this situation. We take our ‘safeguarding’ responsibilities very seriously.

What is Domestic Abuse?

Abuse is not normal and never ok. If you are in a relationship with someone, you should feel loved, safe, respected and free to be yourself. There are different forms of abuse, which you can find out about on the ‘Disrespect Nobody‘ website, but if your relationship leaves you feeling scared, intimidated or controlled, it’s possible you’re in an abusive relationship. Find out more about the issue, have your say and seek help.


Ocean is committed to providing a confidential, caring and sensitive response to anyone experiencing Domestic Abuse, throughout Cornwall.
