Accessing local support when you're struggling
Domestic abuse: if you’re feeling unsafe, support is available
Household isolation instructions as a result of coronavirus do not apply if you need to leave your home to escape domestic abuse. Support is available, both locally and nationally, to anyone who is experiencing abusive behaviour: you are not alone.
If you or someone you know is affected by domestic abuse, call the National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247. You can also visit the Bedfordshire Domestic Abuse Partnership website for more information about local and national support for all affected by domestic abuse, including men, children and young people, older people and people from the LGBT+ community. If you’re in immediate danger, always dial 999.
