Local Solutions operates the Worst Kept Secret Helpline,where support can be accessed by Phone, Online chat and Email, 10-3 every weekday - for anybody affected by domestic abuse or concerned about a friend or family member. Visit the Worst Kept Secret Website.
In case of emergency dial 999. The 999 call system allows all 999 callers to access support if they are unable to speak during the call. It is important that either a noise is made or that 55 is pressed. For example, if you can only make noise, such as tapping the handset, coughing, crying or even talking to the offender, then these actions will alert the attention of the BT operator.
We know that the government's advice on self or household isolation will have a direct impact on families and impacts affected by domestic abuse. For advice, please visit our Worst Kept Secret website.
