We know that the government’s advice on self or household-isolation will have a direct impact on families experiencing domestic abuse. Home is not likely to be a safe place for victims of domestic abuse. We are concerned that social distancing and self-isolation will be used as a tool of coercive and controlling behaviour by perpetrators, and could shut down routes to safety and support.
If you, or someone you know, are experiencing abuse, please call our helpline on 0800 028 3398 or email us – WKS@localsolutions.org.uk
We will be available to listen, to provide advice & guidance on keeping you and your family safe.
