Domestic Abuse and Violence

If you are in immediate danger, always phone the police on 999.

If you are an NCHA tenant and experiencing domestic abuse please contact your Estate Officer, who will be able to give you advice on your housing situation. There are a range of options from making your current home more secure, to helping you find a new place to live.

The Women's Aid Nottingham site have very good information that applies to anyone in any area about what to do in an emergency and how you can prepare if you are thinking about leaving.
