Response from Margaret Cheetham, Specialist Practitioner: Domestic Abuse, Local Services Safeguarding Team, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

Domestic and sexual violence and abuse (DSVA) is an issue that affects people of all ages and from all walks of life. What is great in Nottingham City and County is that we have a range of specialist partner agencies who can offer help, support and guidance.

If your are experiencing DSVA or need advice for someone who is, please contact the free local 24 Hour Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 800 0340. If you feel that you or your children are in immediate danger, please ring 999.
