It can happen to anyone and is rarely a one-off incident.

It is a crime for someone you know to abuse you in your own home or anywhere else — whether they are your partner, a member of your family or someone you share your home with. Whatever the person abusing you might say, physical and emotional abuse like this is never your fault.

Getting emergency support

If you are in immediate danger dial 999 and the police will treat this as a silent call. If you can, make yourself heard by coughing, tapping the handset or when prompted by the automated system - by pressing 55.

If you are a neighbour and are worried about an abusive situation call the police by dialing 999 or contacting CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111.

If you are experiencing domestic abuse and need support with housing, you can speak confidentially to your Neighbourhood Housing Officer or report it to us by contacting the Portal.

If you live in Rochdale & require specialist domestic abuse support and or access to refuge accommodation, please contact Victim Support on Contact number 0161 507 9609 or Email
