Relationship abuse can take many different forms. It involves more than physical violence. It can be when someone puts you down and makes you feel worthless and useless, telling you that you are mad or ill or making false allegations and accusations.

When you are looking after someone, especially in difficult circumstances, they are your main priority and often any thoughts of your own needs or wellbeing are long forgotten.

We all enjoy our home comforts - such as being able to grab a shower or relaxing in a comfortable chair in the garden. However, over time, daily needs in the home can change, particularly in light of any illnesses that may occur.

The Electrical Industries Charity is extremely proud to announce that the team of three enthusiastic trekkers are back from the biggest challenge of the year – the Great Wall of China trek 2018.

In difficult times the support of your family makes a huge difference, such as a family member coming to an appointment with you or looking after you following an operation
