SECTION FOUR - WHERE TO SIGNPOST HER TO

Where can she seek help?

Phone lines are open to anyone who needs to talk in confidence to people specially trained to help domestic abuse victims. 

There are also domestic abuse charities who offer support and safe, confidential housing regionally including WAITS that supports women in the Midlands. 

  • If she and/or her family are in immediate danger, she should call 999. Domestic abuse is a crime whether it has occurred once or several times over a number of years. The police will treat it as such and have specially trained officers who deal with cases
  • For 24hr help contact the Freephone National Domestic Abuse Helpline run by Refuge on 0808 2000 247. She can also email helpline@womensaid.org.uk

  • Help can be sought from pharmacies, a GP, midwife or health visitor. Look out for Boots pharmacies displaying ‘Ask for ANI’ posters. ANI (pronounced Annie) is a codeword for ‘assistance needed immediately.’ It is a way to discreetly ask for help from pharmacy staff. Ask for Angela is a similar scheme for bars, clubs and restaurants.
