Self-isolation can be a difficult period of time, especially for those whose home may not be a safe space.
Many helplines including those who support Domestic Violence and LGBT+ Charities have seen calls doubling as worringly people are seeking support as they are stuck self-isolating with abusive family and partners.
There is also a wide range of support services that we work closely with to support victims of domestic abuse.
These services are available across our force area and offer fantastic support to victims in need of advice and information.
