Get help with abuse and domestic violence from a hotline in Portugal

Domestic abuse is the act of controlling or dominating a spouse, partner, boyfriend/girlfriend or family member. The abuse doesn't have to be physical – it may be emotional, sexual, verbal or financial in nature.

If you are being psychologically, emotionally or physically harmed, you are not alone. Statistics show that one in three women and one in three men have experienced abuse and domestic violence. If you're looking for support, there are 4 abuse and domestic violence hotlines in Portugal. Reach out if this is happening:

  • Your privacy online being invaded
  • You are being controlled by your partner/family member
  • Your partner/family member constantly checks up on you
  • Feeling helpless, desperate, or emotionally numb
  • Your partner/family member humiliates you, insults you and puts you down
  • Your partner/family member hurts you or is threatening to hurt you
  • Your devices are being monitored or tracked by a partner/family member
  • Being forced to have sex or perform other sexual activities that you don’t want to

Every case of abuse and domestic violence is unique. Every family and partnership has its own story. It’s perfectly normal to feel conflicted and insecure about the whole situation. Going through it alone can be confusing and, importantly, dangerous.

Every story of abuse and domestic violence is unique. You are the one who will figure out what the best way out is for you as a person and in your circumstances. However, it is always easier to overcome such hardships with the right kind of support.

Consider contacting a helpline in Portugal for free, confidential help with abuse and domestic violence today.
