Now more than ever it is important that people of Wiltshire know where to access help if they are victims of Domestic Abuse.

Calls to both national and local helplines are soaring as people are finding that the restrictions of the pandemic are creating a toxic environment in the home which is both frightening and unsafe.

Swindon Domestic Abuse Support Service based in Swindon, also covers the county of Wiltshire. We would be very grateful if you could include our article (or a version of it), in your magazine.

We need to help as many people as possible, young and old, male and female across our county. We want to raise the profile of domestic abuse and with your help we could save lives or at least a life of misery for many, including children who are the innocent victims witnessing the abuse.
