Helpline

ANYONE experiencing domestic abuse and/or forced marriage in Dumfries and Galloway is being urged to contact a new helpline. Scotland’s Domestic Abuse and Forced Marriage Helpline has just received a £1.7m boost and staff want to ensure more people are supported, protected and can access the emotional and practical support they need. Manager Lydia Okroj said: “Domestic abuse and forced marriage are both isolating and frightening experiences and no-one should go through them alone; our helpline is there to ensure that no-one has to. We want to make sure that our number is known by everyone like another emergency service, giving a lifeline to those who need it.” The helpline is available 24/7 on 0800 027 1234.
