Where can you get support?

You do not have to wait for an emergency situation to find help.

If domestic abuse is happening to you, it's important to tell someone and remember you're not alone.

If you or someone you know is at immediate risk or feel that you are in danger, please call 999.

If it is not an emergency but you need help from the police, please call 101.

For non-emergencies you can also report a crime online [external link]
