Domestic Abuse Support

People living in isolation and lockdown during COVID-19 are at an increased risk of exploitation and abuse.

If you are in immediate danger, or concerned that someone else might be, call the police on 999.

The ‘Silent Solution’: If you are in danger and it is unsafe to speak, dial 999 and wait for instructions. Press 55 on your phone when prompted. The police will know
this is an emergency, your call will be assessed and help will be arranged.
