Domestic abuse support

If you or someone you know are experiencing domestic abuse, we want you to know you are not alone, and help is available.

Remember, the household isolation instruction as a result of coronavirus does not apply if someone needs to leave their home to escape domestic abuse.

If you are in immediate danger, or you suspect someone is in immediate danger, please call 999 and ask for the police.
