Many people feel vulnerable and may be concerned about the safety of themselves and their children. This is not just physical safety but mental, emotional safety, financial security or coercive control.
If you or your family are in immediate danger don’t be afraid to call the police on 999. Otherwise please contact Kent Police on the non-emergency telephone number 101 or visit your local police station to speak with an officer in confidence.
Domestic abuse is a pattern of behaviour on the part of the abuser designed to control their partner. It can happen at any point in a relationship, including after you have separated.
Domestic Abuse is a crime.
