Beyond Words


Domestic Violence

  • When it’s not safe to stay at home
    • It‚Äôs true that during coronavirus most people must stay home to stay safe. But home is not a safe place for some people so, if you are a victim of domestic or other abuse, to stay safe you must get help which may mean breaking the rules on lockdown.
    • If you are in immediate danger dial 999. When the call centre answers, you don‚Äôt need to say a word ‚Äď just dial 55. This is a silent code for domestic abuse

Keep In Touch

If you’re feeling anxious, concerned or unsafe and want to talk to an adult about how you’re feeling, please have a look at these resources and then contact us:
