24 Hour Domestic and Sexual Violence Helpline
The 24 Hour Domestic and Sexual Violence Helpline provides information, emotional support and the opportunity to talk over concerns such as housing and legal options. It is a confidential service open to all women and men affected by domestic and sexual violence and is free from all landlines and mobiles and will not be disclosed via 1471 or appear on your phone bill. Family members, friends, colleagues and other organisations can also access the service.
In response to The Domestic Abuse and Civil Proceedings Act (Northern Ireland) 2021, a digital awareness tool “DAART NI” (Domestic Abuse Awareness Raising Tool NI), has been launched and is freely available to professionals and anyone else with an interest in this area. It provides an introduction to the new offence as well as general information and awareness of domestic abuse.” The Domestic Abuse Awareness Raising Tool (DAART NI) is accessible at www.daart-ni.co.uk
