Domestic abuse support services remain contactable during the current lockdown.
If you need to contact the police or support services during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it is not safe to do so from home, there are safe spaces you can access. Always contact the police on 999 if you are in immediate danger.
Boots the Chemist
All Boots branches nationally that have a private consulting room attached to the pharmacy are offering this
as a safe space for anyone who needs to contact the police or support services. There will be a poster in the
window. Ask at the pharmacy counter.
All Torbay schools that are open have offered a safe space to contact services whether your child is currently
attending the school or not. If they usually attend, you can ask for help at their school.
