Campaign – Crime Stoppers – Domestic abuse is happening in Lancashire and Greater Manchester

“Lockdown measures during Covid-19 have increased the risk for vulnerable people in abusive relationships, many of whom will be living with their abusers.

In our new campaign, we want to encourage you to learn the signs to spot, so that if you do see or hear something, you can speak up and tell us what you know. 100% anonymously – guaranteed.

As a bystander, family member, colleague or friend you may feel helpless when you know someone is a victim of domestic abuse. Whilst ultimately the victim will need to make the decision to leave the relationship themselves, we encourage you to report your suspicions. We will then pass on information to the police who, with partners, may be able to intervene away from the abuser to check the potential victim is OK.” https://crimestoppers-uk.org/campaigns-media/campaigns/domestic-abuse-is-happening-in-lancashire-and-greater-manchester
