Domestic abuse and violence

 Standing together against domestic abuse

The Norfolk-wide approach to reduce domestic abuse and help people to walk away safely is available on Norfolk County Council's website.

Domestic abuse includes financial, emotional, psychological or sexual control and threatening behaviour, as well as physical violence and stalking.

It is perpetrated by current or former intimate partners or family members, including young people and adults.

Report abuse

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call 999, or get someone else to phone, and state whether you need the police, ambulance or fire service.

If the situation is not an emergency, but you still need the police, call 101.

White Ribbon Day

White Ribbon Day is on 25 November
