One Number for Victims of Domestic Abuse

Victims of domestic abuse including men will now have just one number to call as DCC expand their helpline service.  

Previously, victims calling Derbyshire Domestic Abuse Helpline could be passed onto other agencies depending on their assessed level of risk and men would be referred to another number.

Now all services have been brought together under the existing helpline meaning victims only have to make one call whatever their circumstances or gender.

Last year Derbyshire police received more than 12,300 reports of domestic abuse and nationally one in four women and one in six men will experience abuse at some point in their lives. Meanwhile, around 130,000 children live in households with a high-risk of domestic abuse.

Derbyshire Domestic Abuse Helpline 0800 0198 668.
