Raising a domestic abuse concern

If you know of anyone who is in immediate danger, injured, or a crime is being committed, call 999 now.

If it is not an emergency, but you need to raise a concern for a person's safety, we have separate, specialised services available for raising domestic abuse and safeguarding concerns for both children and adults. We will also provide you with information and community service contacts available.

If you are worried that a friend, neighbour, loved one or yourself could be a victim of domestic abuse, call Paragon on 0800 234 6266 or email paragoniow@theyoutrust.org.uk to report your concern.
