Safety first

If domestic abuse is happening in your home, don’t try to stop it – you might get hurt. Instead:

  • Call 999 and ask for the police. If you don’t feel safe calling from your home, use a phone box or call from a friend’s house.
  • Find a safe place away from the fight.

Tell a friend or an adult you trust. If a fight happens, call them. Sometimes in an emergency it’s useful to sort out a ‘codeword’ so that the other person knows what is going on, and can get help.

It’s local council election day! Make your vote matter. If you see your local candidates at the polling station, ask if they have signed our #SurvivorPledge, and are committed to supporting us to end domestic abuse in the city. #LocalElections #EdinburghWomensAid https://t.co/q1L5y45Ff6
