Support for residents affected by domestic abuse

We understand that whilst you're staying at home to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, you may be concerned or anxious. We want to make sure that if you're experiencing or feel at risk of domestic abuse during this period we're here to help and support you.

Domestic abuse is unacceptable in any situation, no matter what stresses you're under. The government supports and funds a number of charities who are able to provide advice and guidance. Guidance is also available to help perpetrators change their behaviour.

Visit GOV.UK for support for victims of domestic abuse

If you, a child, or anyone in your family are at immediate risk of harm, call 999 and ask for the police.
