The Department for Education has commissioned the NSPCC to establish a dedicated independent helpline for people who have experienced sexual abuse in educational setting.
The helpline went live on 1 April, and will provide both children and adults who have experienced sexual abuse in schools with support and advice, including onward action such as contacting the police if they wish to. The helpline will also provide support to parents and professionals. Anyone who gets in touch through this dedicated helpline will also be signposted to other relevant support services available, including Childline, which provides ongoing support and counselling to children and young people.
The dedicated and confidential NSPCC helpline – Report Abuse in Education can be reached on 0800 136 663 or by email at email@example.com.
Information About Domestic Violence.
Domestic Violence is a crime.
You have the right to live your life free from fear, violence and abuse. You may feel humiliated, frightened, ashamed or alone – but YOU ARE NOT TO BLAME. Domestic Violence is very common – it can happen to anyone, regardless of age, class, disability, race, sexuality or lifestyle.
Domestic violence can involve physical, emotional and financial abuse, usually by a man towards a woman. You and your children may be abused by a partner, ex-partner or family member. Abuse is rarely a one-off event – it tends to get worse over time, but there is help available.
If you would like advice, information, somewhere safe to stay, or simply want someone to listen, you can ring the National Domestic Violence Helpline – 0808 2000 247 – or speak to the Mentors if you prefer.
