If you're experiencing domestic abuse, help is on hand. Even if you're not sure that what's happening is domestic abuse, there are people you can speak to who can talk things through with you and help you work out what steps you can take.

In an emergency you should call 999

If you are unable to speak on the phone, after 20 seconds the operator will put you through the silent solutions team who will ask you to press 55 to confirm it's not safe to speak. Then they will ask you a series of questions that that you can answer by pressing a number on your keypad.

If it's not an emergency...

If you're not in immediate danger, but you do need help or support, call the 24-hour, National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247. You can chat online with someone from the charity Refuge or Women's Aid have a chat function.
