As I’m sure we’re all well aware, many people are really struggling with having to spend so much with their families and unsurprisingly domestic abuse incidents have increased.
The Respect phoneline 0808 802 4040 offers support to perpetrators and potential perpetrators of domestic abuse. It is free from landlines and mobiles. Please share this as widely as you can with your families.
Clearly a call to this would be difficult for someone to make so if you do find yourself discussing this matter with parents / carers, please reassure them that their strength in making the call would be recognised, they wouldn’t be judged and that the person on the end of the phone would just be pleased they have called.
Survive and Thrive (details already provided in Toolkit) remains the support service for victims of domestic and sexual abuse.
