Christmas can be a stressful time for any person or any family. If you are living with domestic or sexual abuse it can be unbearable.

If you are experiencing, or have ever experienced domestic or sexual violence, help is at hand. No one deserves to be abused. You are not to blame for the violence or abuse and you do not have to put up with it. Get help by calling the 24 Hour Domestic & Sexual Violence Helpline.

The Helpline is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, including over the Christmas period to offer you support, advice, or just a listening ear. We can organise refuge accommodation for you and your children, or signpost you to a range of other services.

If you need help, just call our Helpline on 0808 802 1414 – it’s free from both landlines and mobiles. Or you can email us at 24hrsupport@dvhelpline.org, or text support to 07797 805 839.

Our service is completely confidential and open to all women and men affected by domestic or sexual violence.
