Coronavirus: Domestic Abuse

The measures introduced by the Government to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus are a challenge for all of us, but could be particularly worrying for you if you are a victim of domestic abuse. You may be feeling unsafe if you are isolated in your home with your abuser and if you are now having to work from home, you may have lost your only safe place.

The Employers Initiative on Domestic Abuse have also signposted help services on their website which can be found here.


The National Domestic Abuse Helpline is available 24-hours a day. All calls are free and confidential on 0808 2000 247.
