Domestic abuse and COVID-19

CALL FOR EVIDENCE

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, calls to domestic abuse helplines have increased signifianctly.

The National Audit Office has asked us to share anything we’re hearing about domestic abuse with them. If this is an issue people have contacted you about, please let us know via our online form or by email CV19Enquiries@Healthwatch.co.uk

Today, we’ve also published an advice and information article about what domestic abuse is and where people can go for support. You can use this for your own website and social media. Don’t forget to add in the details of any local organisations people can contact.

You can also support the Home Office domestic abuse campaign #YouAreNotAlone. The campaign resources are available to download here.
