"Speaking out over abuse in Cornwall could be the lifeline someone is looking for".

That from experts, as stats show a 20% jump in stuff like domestic violence, neglect and financial control.

They are urging us to voice concerns about friends, family and neighbours.

Sharon Minty works with victims in Truro and says it is not interfering: "To have a friend or a neighbour or a family member that is coming forward and saying to you, I believe this is happening to you and I want to help you or give you some support through that help, I think victims will all turn around and say yes please".
