If you are in immediate danger you should call 999.
Anyone fleeing violence has a right to approach any local council. You normally need a local connection with the council to get housing support, but not if your local area is dangerous for you.
If the threat of violence is serious and ongoing you should be able to get a place in a refuge. A refuge is a safe temporary place that supports and protects people fleeing violence.
To get a place in a refuge you need to call the National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247.
Men experiencing domestic violence can also call Men’s Advice Line on 0808 801 0327.
LGBT+ people experiencing domestic violence can call Galop on 0800 999 5428.
Call the Centrepoint Helpline free on 0808 800 0661 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm) or leave your details below and a Centrepoint Helpline Advisor will get back to you as soon as possible.
