Keeping your family safe – domestic abuse

Your family's safety is of the utmost importance. Find out what you can do if you have concerns about your safety or your family's safety.

Your family’s safety, along with your own, can often be a big concern following a relationship breakdown.

If you feel that you or your family are in immediate danger, please call the Police on 999. Otherwise, please contact the Police on the non-emergency telephone number 101 or visit your local police station to speak confidentially.

Many people who have left a relationship can feel vulnerable and may be concerned about their and their children’s safety. 

Concerns about your family’s safety can include physical, sexual, verbal, mental, or financial abuse and can also include controlling and coercive behaviour.

A helpful place to start and find out how to recognise if this is relevant for you is the UK Government information about domestic abuse.

If you are a child or a young person looking for someone to talk to about what’s happening, call Childline on 0800 1111 or visit the Childline website.
