Victims of domestic abuse or those worried that someone may be suffering in silence now have access to an out of hours helpline in Wiltshire.
The joint initiative between Wiltshire Council and Swindon Domestic Abuse Support Service will ensure people can get access to help and support at any time day or night.
Wiltshire Council has funded the initiative with the out of hours helpline being available to cover evenings/ weekends and bank holidays from 5pm – 9am. The new service started at 5pm on 8th May 2020 and the helpline number is 01793 610 610.
This will compliment the Splitz Support Service which currently runs through the working week from 8am to 5pm on 01225 775276.
The service offers support to female, male, LBGTQ+ and those just wanting advice regarding a friend or family member.
