One incredibly concerning side effect of the Government’s order for us to stay at home is that we are seeing an increase in incidences of domestic violence. Our newly-appointed Shadow Home Secretary, Nick Thomas-Symonds, has written to his Government counterpart, Priti Patel, to call for urgent emergency financial assistance for organisations that run frontline domestic abuse services and the use of hotels and university halls as emergency accommodation.

However, please don’t think this means that victims cannot access help at the moment. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, the following services will offer advice and assistance.
