In Immediate Danger?
If you believe you are, or a friend or relative is in immediate danger then you should telephone the police by calling 999
Need support or advice?
Our helpline provides you with time to talk about your options and a chance to be listened to. You can get information about housing, legal, financial, council and other services related to domestic abuse. You can also get help with somewhere safe to stay if you are too frightened to stay at home.
- Confidential – all conversations are held in confidence between BWA and the caller.
- Listening – there is no pressure, we are here to listen in the first instance.
- Non-judgemental – survivors of abuse can be made to feel guilty, to believe that it is their own fault. This is never true, but it is part of the pattern of abuse. We do not judge – we are hear to provide support and advice.
- Open to all – BWA supports all survivors of domestic abuse, anyone can get advice from our helpline, and if you need specialist advice we have sources we can make available. We can advise friends and relatives who are worried about someone as well as survivors of abuse themselves.
