How Can You Help? is a new booklet about how to help people in family violence situations. It's based on research by the It's Not Ok Campaign which identified what kind of helping works best.
Campaign Manager Trish Green said, "We found that the way help is offered is often the most important thing: not judging, offering support not advice, encouraging people rather than telling them what they should do."
If you're worried about children or other family members but not sure if you should get involved or what action you should take, this booklet has clear advice and suggestions.
