Coronovirus and Domestic Abuse Support

We know that this is a difficult and challenging time for everyone – but particularly so for adults and children living with domestic abuse and the professionals working hard to support them.
Avoiding public spaces and working remotely can help to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but for many survivors, staying home may not be the safest option.
We know that any external factors that add stress and financial strain can negatively impact survivors 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 corona virus outbreak.
Remember, in an emergency always call 999
