Domestic Abuse

Alert message sent 14/04/2020 15:42:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch



Domestic abuse is often unseen and unheard and Neighbourhood Watch have a  crime prevention toolkit on Domestic Abuse on ourwatch.org.uk website

Sarah Carter, Strategic lead for Domestic Abuse, from Oxfordshire County Council, said:
“It is more important than ever that Oxfordshire residents have access to information and support.
“Social distancing, isolation and shielding measures mean people suffering domestic abuse are less able to reach out for help. This means we all have a role to play in protecting those at risk; looking and listening out for our neighbours, friends, family and others in the community.”

How and where to get help and support:
Anyone in immediate danger should phone 999.
Or if in danger and unable to talk on the phone, dial 999 and then press 55. This will transfer the call to police, who will assist without the caller having to speak.
Oxfordshire Domestic Abuse Services offers free advice: 0800 731 0055 (Mon-Fri 10am-7pm). Email das@a2dominion.co.uk
Alternatively, call the 24-hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline: 0808 2000 247.
Anybody worried about causing harm to the ones they love can get help by contacting Respect Phoneline - 0808 802 4040. https://respectphoneline.org.uk
