Getting help

Domestic abuse is not love. There’s no excuse.

In an emergency dial 999, or you can report non-emergencies to your local police force on 101.

If you are unable to speak safely, make yourself heard by coughing, tapping the handset or - once prompted by the automated system - by pressing 55. The IOPC have produced a PDF document with information on this system.                

The Exit site button on the left of this page will quickly hide the page but you will still need to delete your history to fully cover your tracks.

You can find guidance on or use the local and national organisations below.
