Important Information about Domestic Abuse and Coronavirus

In recent weeks and months, the measures the country is taking to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic have radically changed our lives.

Such large scale changes have understandably caused many of us anxiety and stress. For those experiencing or fearful of domestic abuse, these feelings will be magnified.

There is never an excuse for domestic abuse, and we want people to know there is support. You are not alone.

It’s important to know that the government order to stay at home DOES NOT apply if you need to leave your home to escape domestic abuse.

For information on all  the services and charities that are there to help you, as well as what to look for if you suspect someone else is suffering domestic abuse, you can access the Government guide here.
