Domestic Abuse - You Are Not Alone

HIDE THIS WEBPAGEVictim messaging-03

If you have been affected by domestic abuse, help is here now.

Domestic abuse isn’t just between people in a relationship; ex-partners and other family members might put you at risk. Domestic abuse services are here to support anyone who needs them.

Services want to hear from you and are ready to listen and help and their contact details are below.

If you have spotted signs that someone is at risk of domestic abuse, we are ready to help. It could be a friend, family member or neighbour. If you are worried about them, let us know. For advice or concerns, support services are there to help. Domestic abuse isn’t just physical, it can be emotional, sexual or financial. Recognise the signs and reach out for help. If you spot these warning signs of domestic abuse, they should be taken seriously. People who are being abused may:

  • Seem afraid or anxious to please their partner
  • Go along with everything their partner says and does
  • Check in often with their partner to report what they’re doing
  • Receive frequent, harassing phone calls
  • Talk about their partner’s temper, jealousy, or possessiveness

Get help now - See the section below for details of services where you live, or for support in all areas:

If you are in immediate danger, call 999 and ask for the police. If you can’t speak, press 55 on your mobile or remain silent on your landline while the operator is on the line.

Clare's Law

The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme, known as 'Clare's Law' gives members of the public a right to ask the Police where they have a concern that their partner may pose a risk to them or where they are concerned that the partner of a member of their family or a friend may pose a risk to that individual. If police checks show that your partner has a record of violent behaviour, or there is other information to indicate that you may be at risk from your partner, the police will consider sharing this information with you.
