Can I access support during this time?

IDAS and many other specialist agencies are still available to support survivors of domestic abuse or sexual violence. Our helpline continues to be available in addition to Live Chat on our website; you can also email if you have a query. If you have a worker already assigned to you, then they will have spoken to you about how to continue their support, if it is safe to do so. We may have spoken to you about a code word or phrase to say to indicate if it isn’t a safe time to speak. If you can take phone calls, we will be arranging support calls during this time to ensure you can still check in and discuss any concerns you may have. We can also look at other options for support including video calls, messaging services and emails. We’ll work with you to offer support in a safe way.
