Suffolk Domestic Abuse Helpline Story

We received a telephone call to the Suffolk Domestic Abuse Helpline from S. She sounded very low on the phone and said she needed to flee her relationship. Her husband was away but would be returning to the family home the next evening. 

S had been to see her GP due to her low mood and they had signed her off work. Her GP also informed S about our Helpline number – we’re very grateful to all organisations, individuals, and businesses that pass on the number. S said that she had attempted to leave her husband in January 2020 but he had found the number for a refuge she’d been keeping, they had argued and she was too frightened to leave him at that time. 

Read S’s story in her own words in our new website section and please pass on the Suffolk Domestic Abuse Helpline number to anyone that may need help: 0800 977 5690
