If you are in any danger you should call 999 immediately.
The Home Office has a system in place called Silent Solutions which helps callers, such as domestic abuse victims, who cannot speak to an operator.
If you have not been able to signal that your call is an emergency by coughing or whispering after dialling 999, you will be put through to the operator.
If you are in danger, you will be asked to dial "55" otherwise the call will be terminated.
Support if you are worried about hurting someone
If you are worried about hurting the ones you love while staying at home, call the Respect phoneline for support and help to manage your behaviour. This is an anonymous and confidential helpline for men and women who are harming their partners and families. It takes calls from partners or ex-partners, friends, and relatives who are concerned about perpetrators. Telephone: 0808 802 4040
