Resources for Victims of Domestic Violence
If you or someone you know is in danger, call 999 immediately to reach the police. Please refer to the Wandsworth Council advice on domestic violence emergencies.
Every week, two people in the UK are killed as a result of domestic violence. This tragic statistic serves to show us how big of an issue domestic violence is in our country. All too often, victims of abuse suffer in silence and fail to report incidents in fear of their partners, and all too often this allows it to continue. While we know how difficult and upsetting it can be to talk about your experience, we strongly recommend that you reach out to the community for support. There are many charities and organisations, national and local, that have been set up to provide victims with a safe space to talk freely about their experience as well as give continued help and support and even accommodation for victims.
Victim Support Wandsworth offers help to victims and witnesses of violent or emotional domestic abuse, independent of authorities. VSW provide practical and flexible advice to people of all age and gender, and can be contacted on 0845 450 3936 between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday.
Broken Rainbow is a charity set up to provide support and security to the LGBT community who have experienced domestic abuse. To get in touch with Broken Rainbow, call them on their free-phone at 0800 999 5428.
