Government support for victims of domestic abuse during coronavirus

Measures announced over recent weeks to tackle coronavirus (COVID-19) have seen people’s day-to-day life be drastically altered. These changes are essential to beat coronavirus and protect our NHS.

The government acknowledges that the order to stay at home can cause anxiety for those who are experiencing or feel at risk of domestic abuse. Domestic abuse is unacceptable in any situation, no matter what stresses you are under.

The Home Office have published guidance on how victims can get help, and specific advice for finding support during the COVID-19 outbreak.
