Domestic abuse is a crime that can leave you feeling trapped and lonely. We are here for you, however, if you'd rather not talk to the police, there are other ways to get help.
You do not need to be experiencing domestic abuse at the time to speak to seek help and advice. Our officers will be happy to discuss with you any concerns that you may have, and help you with the options available, including a range of organisations that can help you in your area.
This free phone service for Somerset and North Somerset will not leave a trace on your telephone bill and can put you in touch with services available in your area including refuges, legal advice and other support services.
They will discuss the practical and legal options available, and if you wish, refer you to a local Women's Aid refuge and advice service, or other sources of help.
