Domestic abuse support

Domestic abuse is a horrendous crime, which can have a long-term and devastating impact on families and particularly children.

I am extremely concerned that the lockdown restrictions have heightened domestic tensions and potentially cut off escape routes. I am in touch with the council’s Domestic and Sexual Abuse Coordinator and Community Safety team and am scrutinising our service provision in this area.

National and local domestic abuse support services continue to operate so anyone who needs help is encouraged to get it.

If you are worried that someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse you can call Next Link on 0800 4700 280 or access their Live Chat Facility via their website .
