Get Help Now
If you're a victim of domestic abuse, there are many different organisations that can help you.
In immediate danger?
If you or someone you know is in immediate danger call the police on 999.
If you’re in an emergency situation and need police help but you can’t speak, try to make yourself heard by tapping the handset or coughing if you can. Once prompted by the automated system, press 55. This lets the operator know it’s a genuine emergency and you will be put through to a police call handler trained to deal with ‘silent calls’.
If you don’t press 55, the call will be terminated. Pressing 55 does not allow police to track your location.
