Coronavirus and abuse

At Solace, we're working hard to ensure every woman affected by abuse during the Coronavirus pandemic can be safe and get the support she needs.

From our specialist work, we understand the additional challenges women are facing right now while in lockdown. So we've brought together some resources to help survivors, and those supporting them, at this critical time.

If you are experiencing abuse, you are not alone. Our phone lines are open, our doors are open and our staff are here to help you.
