If you, or someone you know, is experiencing domestic abuse we can help you get the support you need.
We know that domestic abuse can ruin lives. Every year 1.4 million women and 700,000 men experience some form of domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse is any kind of controlling or threatening behaviour between two people who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members.
It’s important to remember that domestic abuse does not have to be physical violence. Abuse can be psychological, sexual, financial and emotional. It can also happen just one time, or on a regular basis. For that reason, domestic abuse can sometimes be hard to recognise – even if it is happening to you.
If you’re worried you, or someone you know, might be experiencing domestic abuse we can help – please contact our customer service centre online or by calling 0300 456 9996. We’ll believe you and you can trust us with your story.
If you’re in immediate danger, always call 999 first.
If you need to alert the emergency services but can't talk safely, please dial 999 and then press 55 when given a cue. This will forward your call to the police and make them aware of the situation.
We also work with several specially trained agencies who have helped other residents to feel safe again. You can speak in confidence to:
