Helpline Numbers for Domestic Abuse Support

The Harborough District Community Safety Team would like to share important helplines for those at risk:

If you or your family are in immediate danger call 999. If you are unable to talk press 55 after dialling and the Police will know that you need help. Please note that it is okay to leave your home during lockdown if you are experiencing abuse. The police can also remove the person harming you from your home. It is important for you to know that, if you think you may be in an abusive relationship, there is help available.

If you're worried you, or someone you know, may be experiencing domestic abuse speak to a trusted colleague or safeguarding officer or contact one of the support agencies below:
