Domestic abuse #YouAreNotAlone - national support
At home shouldn't mean 'at risk'.
If you or someone you know is suffering from domestic abuse, isolation rules don't apply. Police response and support services are still available.
You can still seek refuge and support from the National Domestic Abuse helpline:
0808 2000 247 (freephone 24 hours)

firstname.lastname@example.org Silent Solutions
Silent Solutions is a system for victims of domestic abuse who might be afraid of further danger and escalation of harm if they are overheard when calling 999 in an emergency.
When somebody calls 999, an operator will ask which emergency service is required. If the caller is unable to audibly signal to the operator, the call will be forwarded to an operating system.
If 55 is pressed by the caller, the system will detect this. The operator will then transfer the call to the relevant police force as an emergency.
Find local and national support services on the Rutland Information Service.
Childline provide help and support for children who live in a home where domestic abuse is taking place, information is available on their website, as well as through their free phone service 9am - Midnight.
