Surrey Police are holding events across the county offering domestic abuse victims advice and support.
The theme for the week is ‘Healthy Relationships’ prompting people to choose the words that best describe their relationship.
Descriptions like controlling, dishonest or pressurised can be a sign that the relationship is less healthy and could later involve sexual or physical violence.
With more than 12,000 domestic abuse incidents reported in 2012, Surrey residents are asked to think about their personal relationships this week, in an attempt to spot the signs of a relationship that could turn abusive.
Heather Edwards went to meet one victim of domestic abuse.
