In an emergency always call 999, and you can report any incident of domestic violence at any police station. If it is not an emergency, you can also telephone 101 to speak to the police.
Help from social services
If you already receive support from either adults’ or children’s social services, your social worker may be able to help and advise you about any risk of violence or abuse.
This is more likely to be the case if you are elderly, are under the age of 18, have left care (or are about to do so), are in poor health or have a physical or learning disability.
Social services may be able to help and advise you about your situation and support you in finding accommodation.
Ealing‘s social services can be contacted on 020 8825 8000.
The Rail to Refuge scheme helps survivors of domestic abuse travel to refuge for free until the end of March 2021.
