Our Helpline is for any woman affected by domestic violence or abuse, present or past.


Helpline hours are 10:00 - 15:00 Monday – Friday but we also have a 24 hour answerphone.

Our specialist team of female staff and volunteers are experienced and specifically trained to understand domestic abuse and the impact it has on you and your children. Sometimes our line may be busy and your call might be taken by our answer machine. This means that we are dealing with other calls so please do leave us a message as we will always call you back as long as you leave us a safe contact number in your message. When we call you back, our number will show up as withheld. This is for safety reasons.
