National Domestic Violence Helpline

The National Domestic Violence Helpline is for women experiencing domestic violence, and for their family, friends, colleagues and others calling on their behalf. The helpline offers advice and support and how to get a refuge place.
Women who become homeless because of abuse, violence or threats may be able to get a place in a refuge at a secret address. If you don’t feel safe in your own area, you may be able to go to a women’s refuge in another part of the country.
