Domestic abuse support

If home isn’t safe, support is available. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse you can get help from the following sources of support.

In an emergency, call 999. If you’re in an emergency situation and need police help, but can’t speak, Make Yourself Heard and let the 999 operator know your call is genuine – read more information about #MakeYourselfHeard and #SilentSolution here.

For more information visit: or see the Domestic abuse and sexual violence support poster.
