On Domestic Abuse and Violence during the Coronavirus lockdown

Domestic abuse and violence continues to be a priority for us and our partners at West Yorkshire Police – Calderdale Valleys . Domestic abuse can take the form of physical violence but it can also be controlling behaviour.

If you’re worried that your partner may become abusive or violent while you’re in isolation or social distancing, please call 101 or 999 if it’s an emergency. If you need the police but can’t speak, press 55 during the call. Visit here for more information 👉www.westyorkshire.police.uk/domesticabuse

Support and advice is also available for anyone who has committed domestic abuse in the past and is worried that the impact of lockdown and Coronavirus may affect their behaviour again. You can call 0808 8024040 or email info@respectphoneline.org.uk

If you’re worried that someone you know is suffering domestic abuse but you’d rather not speak to the Police you can call Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. No matter how insignificant you might think something is, speak out.
