Domestic Abuse – help is available right now

Northumbria Police Logo

Northumbria Police want people who are facing domestic abuse during the pandemic to know that support is still available, and have produced a list of organisations that can help across the Tyne and Wear area. Please share this with anyone you think may need help.

For two million victims of domestic abuse, home may not be the safe place it should be.

We can help support you if you are experiencing domestic abuse, you can contact Northumbria Police by telephone on 101 or 999 in an emergency.

If you dial 999 and are unable to speak, the emergency operator will ask you to dial 55 and to follow their instructions to quickly put you in touch with police.

You can also get information and report incidents online via our website www.northumbria.police.uk

There is also a wide range of support services that we work closely with to support victims of domestic abuse.

These services are available across our force area and offer fantastic support to victims in need of advice and information.
