With thanks to SafeLives and Women’s Aid for their information and guidance on this subject.
We know that the unprecedented situation at this time is difficult for everyone, particularly those who may be facing long periods of isolation with someone who may be harming or abusing them.
We have created this guide to help you understand ways of keeping yourself and your family safe during the COVID-19 crisis.
The NHS website can provide specific information and guidance about coronavirus.
Below is a list of tips to help you manage your situation, including resources for further support and guidance. Remember that you are the only person who completely understands your situation – only implement the advice that feels relevant, if and when you feel safe to do so.
