Domestic Abuse and Covid-19

Sadly there has been a reported increase in domestic abuse cases associated with the lockdown measures due to Covid-19.  It is important to remember that if you find yourself in that situation you are not alone and there is help for you.

Below are two links which explain options of how to get help.

Locally if you feel you are aware of domestic abuse you can email (please think about who has access to your emails before you do this) or you can text 07771941464.  Specialist staff can phone you back to save your credit or arrange a time to speak to you.  More information can be found here
