Domestic abuse victims reassured help is still available

7th April 2020

The Norfolk Safeguarding Children Partnership would like to reassure victims and survivors of domestic abuse that we will maintain the highest level of service possible during this challenging time.

Alongside all our partners, the Norfolk Safeguarding Children Partnership is working to ensure those vulnerable to such abuse know help is still out there and they need not suffer in silence.

The Coronavirus can disproportionately impact on those who already face many challenges in the home, which can be even more frightening during self-isolation with an abuser.

However, the Norfolk Safeguarding Children Partnership is keen for victims to know there is someone there to help.

The NSCP Chair and Business Unit remains in regular contact with all our partners, to offer help and guidance on how to best put in place contingency arrangements and adapt services to address demand. We are involved in supporting with communications and the development of awareness raising campaigns to reach out to vulnerable children and families, including those who are affected by domestic abuse.

Moving to reassure victims, children and families the Chair of the Norfolk Safeguarding Children Partnership, Chris Robson says “I would like to assure victims, children and everyone effected by domestic abuse that my team has been and continues to work tirelessly with our partners to ensure the right help and support is out there. Now is a time more than ever when we must work together to continue to give a voice to the women, men and children in our county who have been or continue to be affected by this crime.”
