Domestic Abuse

The consequences of COVID-19 infection control measures, whilst challenging for all of us, can pose extra difficulties and risk for those who are living with domestic abuse. Staying indoors is even harder for people whose home is not the haven it should be. Enforced isolation may increase abusive behaviour. It reduces victim’s ability to access help and support. Isolation may be used as a tool of coercive and controlling behaviour by perpetrators, as they attempt to shut down victim’s routes to safety and support.

West Midlands Police have set up a campaign to help support victims through this difficult time.

Don’t suffer in silence if you are a victim of #DomesticAbuse Police and support services are still available to help. Find out more and get the help you need.
