Domestic Abuse reports up by 25%

Most of us will be feeling pressure, anxiety and worry following the implementation of the government’s measures to tackle the Coronavirus outbreak. These measures, whilst being necessary to prevent the virus from escalating, have meant that we are spending the majority of our time cooped up in our homes, only able to leave for daily exercise or purchasing essential food. As a result, those who are at risk of or are suffering from domestic violence, are now isolated in their homes with their abusers making them even more vulnerable during this crisis.

Domestic abuse is unacceptable in any form. If you are feeling at risk there are still specialist services available that can help and support you through this time.

At Nelson Myatt we will be here, at the end of the phone to assist you or to signpost you to the best available help.
