There has been a huge rise in domestic violence in our community at this difficult time. Please look out for your neighbours and report any concerns.

You are not alone! Help is available.

If you, your child or anyone in the family are at immediate risk of harm, you should contact the police urgently, CALL 999. If it is not safe for you to speak, dial 55 and this will let the operator know.
