If you are staying at home with an abusive partner, you can still leave your house to keep yourself safe.
The government has said that anyone who is experiencing domestic abuse, or is at risk of experiencing domestic abuse, can leave and seek refuge. You can read the advice from the government if you would like to know more.
If you are feeling isolated, there is still support available to you both online and over the phone. You can call the National Domestic Abuse Helpline, for free and in confidence, 24 hours a day on 0808 2000 247 (try to memorise this number for when you need it).
You can also read advice from Refuge, advice from Women’s Aid and also Victim Support.
If you are in immediate danger, call 999 and ask for the police. Try and keep your phone charged and with you all the time if you can.
If you’re in danger and you can’t talk on the phone, you can still safely contact the police. Call 999 and then press 55. This will transfer your call to the police and let them know there is an emergency without you having to say anything.
