Guidance for domestic abuse support during lockdown:
The Government have advised that household isolation instructions as a result of coronavirus do not apply if you need to leave your home to escape domestic abuse. Find out more about their guidance by visiting www.gov.uk/guidance/domestic-abuse-how-to-get-help
To access domestic abuse support over the phone or if you need to talk to someone, the following services are available:
If it is an emergency, please call 999.
If you are unable to speak on the phone ' The silent solution' helps people who are unable to speak, but who genuinely need police assistance. After calling 999, dial 55 to be put through to your local police station. The call handler will ask you some simple yes or no questions. If you are not able to speak, listen carefully to the questions and instructions from the call handler so they can assess your call and arrange help if needed.
