Domestic Abuse Guidance

A reminder that if you are in immediate danger but unable to talk then you can dial 999 on a mobile and press 55 when it connects to the operator. This will let the operator know that you are in danger but cannot speak easily. You will be put through to the police call handlers who will try asking questions that can be answered by taping the handset to make a noise or by yes/no responses. It is important that the call handler is able to establish as much information from you as possible.

With the lockdown from Coronavirus causing a rise in reported Domestic Abuse incidents we wanted to remind you that you are not alone. Support services are still running and available to assist you if you are suffering from Domestic Abuse.

The National Domestic Abuse Helpline is also staffed 24 hours a day and available on 0808 2000 247 or go to
