Domestic Abuse can happen to anyone regardless of gender, age, sexuality, religion, ethnicity. Domestic Abuse is a crime!

 

  • If you think someone is in immediate danger or you are in immediate danger call 999. 
  • If you are in a situation where you are unable to talk, dial 999 and listen to the operators questions and respond by coughing or tapping the phone.
  • Alternatively, press 55, this will notify the police (but not your location).
  • If you call 999 from a landline, an operator will automatically connect you to the police if there is no verbal communication. If the landline is replaced, the connection will stand for a further 45 seconds. The police will then be able to locate you.

Domestic Abuse and Children

 

 It can be difficult to tell if a child is being or is witnessing domestic abuse. 

Some warning signs could include; aggression, bullying, bed-wetting, nightmares, constant illnesses, problems in school and in some cases physical injury. 

 

A child/ young person living at home witnessing domestic abuse can have a serious impact on their physical and mental well-being and behaviour, which could lead into their adulthood. 

 

If you are worried about a child/ young person witnessing or being a victim of domestic abuse, seek advice and take action. 

If you think a child is in immediate danger call 999.
