Domestic Abuse and the Covid-19 Pandemic

Local Support

We know that this is a difficult and challenging time for everyone – but particularly so for adults and children living with domestic abuse. It can also negatively affect survivors.

A local and national campaign  #No excuse for Abuse is being run to get the message across that if you or someone you know are experiencing domestic abuse during the coronavirus outbreak, local and national organisations want you to know: You are not alone, and help is still available.

Details of organisations that can help anyone experiencing domestic abuse can be found to the right (just click on the image to download the details).

You can also download both poster 1 and poster 2 below for displaying (if your premises are still open) or sharing on social media or your website.

As always, if you or someone else is in immediate danger please call 999 and ask for the Police
