The Freephone 24 Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline is run in partnership by Women's Aid and Refuge.

The Helpline is a member of Language Line and can provide access to an interpreter for non-English speaking callers. The Helpline can also access the BT Type Talk Service for deaf callers

The Helpline provides support, information and a listening ear to women experiencing (or who have experienced) domestic abuse and to those seeking help on a woman's behalf. Helpline staff will discuss the available options and, if appropriate, refer callers on to refuges and other sources of help and information. Our aim is to enable women to discuss options for action and to empower them to make informed choices to change their life and their children's lives.

If you, or someone you know is experiencing (or has experienced) physical, emotional, psychological or sexual abuse in the home, the helpline can give you support, help and information over the telephone for the cost of a local call, wherever you are in the country. All calls are taken in the strictest of confidence.

The Helpline currently receives over 68,000 calls per year. If all the lines are busy there is a voice mail system that enables callers to leave a message. The messages are checked at regular intervals throughout the day and all calls are returned.

The Helpline is staffed 24hrs a day by fully trained Helpline support workers and volunteers. All staff are women. During the course of a call, the Helpline support worker will respond according to the caller's needs.
 


A variety of information destined for women in difficulty including domestic violence, rape, sexual abuse, sexual harassment, prostitution, homosexuality, contraception, pregnancy termination and abortion, sexuality and health.
