Domestic abuse

Together we are stronger

Although restrictions are lifting in the Bailiwick, some people will still need to self-isolate if they have recently returned or have COVID-19 symptoms but we know that home is not a safe place for everyone.

If you aren’t safe, we are here to help. You do NOT have to suffer and you don’t have to be afraid. Abuse in any form – physical, emotional, financial, sexual or psychological – must be reported.

If you are the victim of domestic abuse, call. If you suspect you know about someone suffering domestic abuse, call.

Even if you are currently unable to leave your home, you can still access support through our Safer helpline 01481 721999 (24/7) or online at enquiries@safer.gg (office hours only).

Safer.gg has produced a guide for victims and survivors of domestic abuse in Guernsey, Alderney and Sark during lockdown due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic abuse you are not alone - Safer can help you. The information can be found here.

An app called Hollie Guard will turn your smart phone into a safety device which can be activated by shaking it, sending your location to designated contacts. The app can be downloaded from app stores.

Guernsey Police are available on 725111. If anyone is in immediate danger call 999.
