As we stay indoors for the national lockdown, we must remember that many people are being quarantined with an abusive partner, family member or guardian.
If somebody you know, or suspect your neighbour is a victim of domestic abuse, please report it – don’t be a bystander.
If you are a victim of domestic abuse, please seek help – you are not alone.
