For two million victims of domestic abuse, home may not be the safe place it should be.
If you are experiencing domestic abuse, you can contact Northumbria Police by telephone on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
If you dial 999 and are unable to speak, the emergency operator will ask you to dial 55 and to follow their instructions to quickly put you in touch with police.
You can also get information and report incidents online via their website www.northumbria.police.uk
There is also a wide range of support services that the Police work closely with to support victims of domestic abuse.
These services are available across the force area and offer fantastic support to victims in need of advice and information.
