Neurodiversity & Domestic Abuse

Research from Durham University suggests that autistic people are at a higher likelihood of experiencing forms of interpersonal violence, such as domestic abuse.

This is an emerging area of research and work within the domestic abuse sector and more information will be added to this page as it is developed.

Autistic Guide to Healthy Relationships

Durham University have co-produced an 'Autistic Guide to Healthy Relationships'. The guide has been written by a team including academics and autistic advocates, and is designed to help autistic people recognise the signs of abusive or unhealthy relationships. It is based on testimonials and experiences shared with the team by autistic people.
