How to report abuse or neglect

Everyone should be able to live freely without fear and to be treated with respect. Abuse is not your fault and no one has the right to abuse you.

I'm worried about myself

Please speak up if you or someone you know is at risk or is experiencing abuse.

If you're not sure if you are experiencing abusive behaviours from another person in your home, living environment, or situation wherever it happens to be, you can contact us for advice and discuss any concerns you may have. 

What to do if you are worried about someone else

If you know someone who you think is at risk, it is important to get help because victims can often feel too scared to come forward.

If someone is in immediate danger, always make sure they are safe first before seeking assistance. If emergency help is needed, dial 999.
