The 24 Hour Domestic & Sexual Violence Helpline is open to anyone affected by domestic violence regardless of gender, sexuality, disability, age or ethnicity.

If you are experiencing domestic 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.

If you are being abused, physically, sexually, financially or emotionally, you have choices. Support is available in many forms. You can contact the 24 Hour Domestic & Sexual Violence Helpline – 0808 802 1414 for initial support and to consider the options which are available to you. The helpline is open to all women and men affected by domestic violence.

You may not want to leave your relationship at this time. Whether you decide to end the relationship with your partner or not, it is important to look after yourself and get support. Women’s Aid can help you begin to think about how to protect yourself and your children from harm.

Remember, you don’t have to be hit to be hurt and you don’t have to leave to get help.

Please read the confidentiality statement below before contacting us.

Confidentiality Statement

The 24 Hour Domestic & Sexual Violence Helpline offers a confidential service for people seeking help and support. This means that when you call or email us you do not have to give any identifying information such as name, address or telephone number. However, if you do give us identifying information and we are concerned that a child is at risk or a criminal offence has been committed which the PSNI may not be aware of, we will have to pass on that information to the appropriate agencies.
