Domestic abuse: how to get help

Domestic abuse: how to get help

Last month, the Home Office added new translations of the guidance on how to get help if you or someone you know is a victim of domestic abuse.

Translations of the page have been added in Arabic, Bangla, Chinese, French, Gujarati, Hindi, Italian, Persian, Polish, Punjabi, Romanian, Somali, Spanish, Tamil, Urdu and Welsh.

The guidance covers how to recognise domestic abuse, get help and support and how to check whether someone has an abusive past.


Also the single point of contact (SPOC) for Domestic Abuse in the borough: 01384 455411 (24 hours), text or Whatsapp 07384 466181 (9am to 9pm weekdays).

The SPOC is a single point of contact for victims of domestic and sexual violence and abuse in Dudley, including Forced Marriage and ‘Honour’ Based Abuse, regardless of gender.

The number gives those who need help a direct line to a range of support services offered by specialist providers including refuge accommodation or additional home security.

The number is also open to victim's families and professionals and helps people get to the right service as easily as possible as and when support is needed.
