Domestic abuse - where to get help during the lockdown

 

 

Post image

Incidents of domestic abuse are increasing during the COVID-19 lockdown. It's important to know that if you're in an abusive relationship you can still leave home during the COVID-19 lockdown.

We've gathered together some of the many sources of support available if you're affected by this issue: 


If you're a Curo resident, check our domestic abuse web pages for information about how we can help.


This leaflet from B&NES Council's Domestic Violence Service includes all agencies in Bath & North East Somerset plus other national services.


Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance's Silent Solutions leaflet explains how to call for help when living with an abuser.


The Brightsky app from Hestia gives access to: 

  • Information in English, Urdu, Punjabi and Polish.
  • A unique UK-wide directory of specialist domestic abuse support services with contact details.
  • A secure My Journal tool to record incidents of abuse via text, audio, video or photo form, without any of the content being saved on the device itself.
  • Questionnaires to assess the safety of a relationship, plus a section on dispelling myths around domestic and sexual abuse.
  • Links to further resources and information on topics around domestic abuse.
