For people experiencing domestic abuse

on .

It's important to know that you are not alone, you can access support through one of the helplines.

Surviving Economic Abuse have produced some guidance that looks at keeping yourself safe while self-isolating, as well as practical issues including benefits and sick pay.

Support is available from Women's Aid's online chat service, open from 10am-12pm Monday-Friday

Chayn provides online tools, information, courses and support for people experiencing abuse, all free to access. Their Soul Medicine courses provide bitesized support, delivered in disguised emails at a time that you choose.

They are also launching a secure Telegram channel to provide particular support during this time.
