“Help is available” – Police join with Women’s Aid to offer support to victims of domestic abuse

Police in Ballymena have joined with their partners Women’s Aid ABCLN to deliver a message in relation to stopping domestic abuse this Christmas season.

A police spokesperson said:

“Unfortunately over the holiday period we often see an increase in incidents of domestic abuse.

“If you are in abusive relationship, we want you to know that help is available. The aim of our ‘Op Season’s Greetings’ campaign is to encourage the reporting of incidents and make victims aware they can take steps to stop it.

“If you are experiencing domestic abuse or any other type of abuse or intimidation, or are concerned for someone who is, you can report it to us by calling 101 or, in an emergency, call 999.

“Calling ‘999’ for help, but too afraid to speak? Dial 55 on your mobile phone when calling in an emergency and the operator will know that you need to be put through to police.”

Women’s Aid ABCLN provides confidential support, information and emergency accommodation for women and children who are affected by domestic abuse across Antrim, Ballymena, Carrickfergus, Larne and Newtownabbey.

If you are affected by domestic abuse this Christmas you can call Women’s Aid ABCLN on 028 25 632136 or in an emergency dial 999.
