Coronavirus pandemic: Government advice to ‘stay at home’ is much harder if you are not safe and respected for who you are at home.
If you don’t feel safe, we can help.

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
