Not a victim but are concerned about someone ?
Crimestoppers Scotland recently launched a new campaign across the country appealing for information from people who are aware of domestic abuse happening to friends, family, work colleagues or neighbours. Domestic abuse can be physical, psychological, emotional, sexual or financial.
The charity said neighbours, family and friends may be suspicious, but are often reluctant to get involved because of embarrassment, split loyalties or fear of revenge.
If you have concerns about someone please contact Crimestoppers’ UK Contact Centre 24/7 on free phone 0800 555 111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org and fill in a simple and secure anonymous online form.
