Support for Victims of Domestic Violence Abuse
We have all read the headlines that calls to domestic violence support services are on the rise, domestic violence cases rose by 21% last month! At Elliot Mather we have noticed this is also the case.
The Government have said they are:
"acutely aware that the necessary guidelines about social distancing and self-isolation may leave the victims of hidden crime, such as domestic abuse and child sexual abuse, feeling especially isolated, vulnerable and exposed."
At Elliot Mather we support victims of domestic abuse. We are able to offer legal aid and we work closely with domestic violence support services. We want to help you.
There have been developments within legal aid to ensure that during these tricky times it is easier for people to access legal aid, there are less rigorous guidelines at this time and we can work with other organisations to get proof of the abuse.
At Elliot Mather we are still working, we can have phone calls or video calls. We can speak with you when you think it’s safe to speak with us.
In terms of court hearings, these can be done remotely and all hearings that need to take place can take place to protect domestic abuse victims.
Please get in touch with us and stay safe!
