Domestic abuse

This is a difficult and worrying time for everyone but especially those who experiencing domestic abuse. We are aware that there may be increased risks as households are following Government guidelines to stay at home. At this time, both national and local domestic abuse services are still open. In the current climate they can provide support over the phone and by email.

If you or anyone you know, is suffering from domestic abuse, call the 24 hour National Domestic Violence Freephone Helpline 0808 2000 247.

Always remember, in an emergency call 999. If you cannot talk or make a sound after dialling 999 stay on the line and dial 55. The call will then be transferred to the police who will know it is an emergency.
