Psychological, emotional, physical and sexual abuse can take many forms.

In an emergency call: 999

If you cannot speak there is a silent solution:

  • Call 999
  • Listen to the operator
  • Cough or tap the handset
  • If prompted press 55 – this lets the operator know it is a genuine call and you are put through to the police
