Are you experiencing domestic abuse?

Wednesday, 01 July 2020

Since the lockdown, the National Domestic Abuse helpline has seen a 25% increase in calls and online requests for help as restrictions increase tensions in some households.


Domestic abuse is not always physical and can be a pattern of controlling, threatening, and coercive behaviour.

If you are concerned about yourself or someone you know, please ask for help – there is support out there!
