Homeless - domestic abuse

If you feel you are in immediate danger dial 999 to speak to the police straight away or for non-emergencies dial 111.

Domestic abuse is not limited to physical violence or confined to instances within the home. Domestic abuse is any incident or a pattern of incidents of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (which includes physical, psychological, sexual, financial or emotional abuse).

Abuse is ‘domestic’ in nature if it is between persons who have been intimate partners, family members or members of the same household. Domestic violence can affect anyone, regardless of gender, race, religion, economic background or sexual orientation.
