What should a victim of domestic violence do to get help?

If you or your children are in immediate danger you should call the police on 999. Even if you have taken yourself away from the immediate danger, domestic violence should never be tolerated and should always be reported to the police.

It is important that you take any children with you if you consider it necessary to leave a violent home. There is excellent assistance and support out there for both male and female victims of domestic violence who can provide you with accommodation at a refuge if you do not have a safe place to stay.

If the domestic violence has resulted in physical and apparent injuries to either you or your children, it is important that you take photographs of the injuries and contact your GP so this can be noted on medical records.

Thereafter, it is important that you contact us for a free initial appointment to discuss your further options.
