Domestic Abuse Support
With #COVID19 restrictions, people are now isolating within their homes. This means that we may see a rise of domestic violence and child abuse cases. If you’re in an emergency situation, but can’t talk, here’s how to let us know you need help: https://bit.ly/2ULN3fQ
While everyone is staying safe from Coronavirus, there are still ladies out there who are now locked in with their abuser. You can still find help for either yourself or a friend/family member. The NHS Website has some good links that you can use. If you need to hide your search history use an incognito window before opening the link, or edit your history and delete the webpage after viewing. Don’t forget to empty your bin as well.
You can contact Women’s Aid via the live chat here:
The .gov website has even added a page with important links here:
Even in this trying time there is still help for those who are able to ask for it.
