During Covid-19 domestic abuse and sexual violence has surged; across our services many more people have reached out for help. Our Domestic Abuse Helpline dealt with over 11,300 enquiries (an increase of 31%) and our Sexual Violence services dealt with 2,782 enquiries, (referrals up 41%). Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic maybe fading, the abuse and violence faced daily by many individuals and families in the South West is not.
