We know that this is a difficult and worrying time for everyone – but particularly so for adults and children living with abuse, and for the professionals supporting them.
This page contains some useful information and contact details for anyone who is experiencing, or concerned about someone living with, abuse.
If you or someone else is in immediate danger please call 999 and ask for the police.
Silent calls will work if you are not safe to speak – use the Silent Solution system and call 999 and then press 55 when prompted.
If you can’t use a voice phone, you can register with the police text service - text REGISTER to 999. You will get a text which tells you what to do next. Do this when it is safe so you can text when you are in danger. Click here to find out more.
