Domestic abuse and MARACs

Social distancing and self-isolation should not be at the expense of protection from abuse and neglect. The local and national helplines and local services will remain open to provide advice and support to those experiencing domestic abuse.

Helpline numbers for people experiencing domestic abuse, their family and friends or professionals:

Domestic abuse advice for women (24 hours) 0808 800 0340

Domestic abuse advice for men (office hours) 0115 960 5556

MARACs are still taking place albeit by telephone.  If you make a referral, you should receive teleconference details from the MARAC administrators.
