Supporting people experiencing domestic abuse
If home isn’t a safe space for you, support is available.
Anyone experiencing domestic abuse can access support from Leeds Domestic Violence Service (LDVS): https://ldvs.uk/.
People who need to leave home to stay safe will still be supported to do so by LDVS or Leeds Housing Options. LDVS continues to support existing clients and their families in the community.
There’ll be a safe place for you to stay with social distancing measures in place to protect you.
Support is available via the LDVS helpline: 0113 246 0401. If calling is unsafe, a web-chat service is now being offered from Monday-Friday between 1pm-3pm via https://leedswomensaid.co.uk/. If you’re in immediate danger, call 999 (press 55 after the emergency number if you’re in danger and unable to speak).
