Domestic abuse support

Domestic abuse support 

The ongoing coronavirus crisis is putting a strain on many families and individuals. Anyone who is suffering domestic abuse can leave home and seek help, despite the government restrictions on movement.

Local domestic abuse services in Buckinghamshire are continuing to offer support, including online and telephone services.

There is also support available to people who want to control their abusive behaviour.

How and where to get help and support:

Anyone in immediate danger should phone 999.

Or, if in danger and unable to talk on the phone, dial 999 from your mobile and then press 55. This will transfer the call to police, who will assist without the caller having to speak.

Call the 24-hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline: 0808 2000 247.

Anybody worried about causing harm to the ones they love can get help by contacting Respect Phoneline - 0808 802 4040
