Domestic Abuse Support During Covid-19

Coronavirus and Domestic Abuse Support 

The government’s advice on self or household-isolation will help reduce the spread of COVID 19 but for many victims of domestic abuse staying at home may not be the safest option. 

We know that any external factors that add stress and financial strain can negatively impact victims and create circumstances where their safety is further compromised. As always, if you or someone else is in immediate danger please call 999 and ask for the police. 

 

If you or someone you know are experiencing domestic abuse and are under quarantine amid the coronavirus outbreak, local and national organisation’s want you to know: You are not alone, and help is still available. 

 

This leaflet provides details of key contacts providing support across the West Midlands as well as some key regional and national helplines available during the coronavirus outbreak. 

Remember, in an emergency always call 999
