Get help now if you are experiencing domestic abuse

If you, or anyone else, is at immediate risk of harm, phone the police on 999. 
The silent solution: If you can't speak or make a sound when calling 999, listen to the operator's questions, then tap the handset. If prompted, press 55. Your call will be transferred to police who will know it's an emergency.

There is support available to help you whether you are currently experiencing domestic abuse or have recently left an abusive relationship. (See also the section Help to move on for help with the longer term impact)
