Since the UK-wide CONVID-10 lockdown began on 23rd March 2020, there has been a 49% increase in calls and online requests for help relating to domestic abuse.
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have made information and resources available to parishes and communities. The Bishops’ Conference reflect that:
“Every person has a right to live their life free from violence, abuse, intimidation and fear. Catholic parishes can play an important role in the fighting the scourge of domestic abuse, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic”.
Significantly, if you are immediate danger, please contact the police directly on 999.
