Safer Lives: domestic abuse and hate crime
We know that COVID-19 and being isolated in your home will have serious impacts on the lives of women migrants. We want to reassure women that there is support for you during this challenging time.
Domestic Violence – who can help?
Domestic violence is a crime. If there has been an incidence of violence or harassment or a threat of violence or harm made against you or someone you know, dial 999.
In an emergency, a police officer or officers should come to you immediately. In an emergency always dial 999.
The Hollie Guard App turns your smartphone into a personal safety device.
Women’s Aid Live Chat – available Monday to Friday 10- 12pm. This could be a safer way to access some support; particularly if an abuser might also be in the property so it would be unsafe to make a telephone call.
