Domestic abuse

Looking for help? 

If you are experiencing domestic abuse and would like some information, advice or support, please contact the local Southend service on 01702 302333.  

Other services you can access if you want to speak to someone either by telephone or online: 

If you are in danger, please call 999. 

If you are afraid of further danger and escalation of harm if you are overheard calling 999 in an emergency, you use the Silent Solution. When somebody calls 999, an operator will ask which emergency service is required. If the caller is unable to audibly signal to the operator, the call will be forwarded to an operating system.  If 55 is pressed by the caller, the system will detect this. The operator will then transfer the call to the relevant police force as an emergency. 

We also have services that can help and further information on Domestic Abuse.
