Information from Revd Susan Oldham
If you have to remain at home, Revd Susan Oldham has prepared some worship at home for you. See 'Services' above. Updated for April/May.
Living with abuse at home
During Covid-19 some people may be feeling unsafe because they are having to spend more time at home with a partner or family member who is harming them in some way. Domestic abuse comes in many forms and during Covid-19 some people will be feeling very isolated.
Although Covid-19 has affected the way in which some services are running right now, help is still available.
In an emergency
In an emergency always contact the police by phoning 999. If it’s too dangerous to speak on the phone in an emergency you can make a silent call. Silent 999 calls are not automatically transferred to the police. If you have made an emergency call but can’t speak (because you believe you will be in danger if you are heard), dial 55 when asked to do so by the emergency operator.
Report domestic abuse to the police if it’s not an emergency
If you want to report domestic abuse that’s happening to you or someone you know to the police you can phone 101
