Help for victims of domestic and sexual abuse

Your Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) works with a number of organisations across the county to ensure specialist support is available for those affected by domestic and sexual abuse. 

If you know someone who is the victim of domestic or sexual abuse, we encourage you to seek help. 

The police will always respond to emergency calls - if you are in immediate danger, always call 999. Police 101 is the non-emergency number.

Silent Solution

The Silent Solution system helps filter out accidental or hoax 999 calls from those who need genuine police assistance. 

If speaking or making an immediate sound would put you in danger and you need immediate help, call 999 and stay on the line, then press 55 when prompted and the call will be transferred to the police, who will know it is an emergency call.

Local support services

There are many local charities and organisations there to provide you with information, advice and support.
