To contact this service please call 0300 0120 154 (Monday to Friday 9am til 5pm)

Their services include giving advice on how to get help, stay safe and how to seek emergency refuge accommodation.  Advice is also available if you are concerned with a loved one. 

Always remember if you are in immediate danger call 999.  If you don't speak or answer questions, press 55 when prompted and your call will be transferred to the police. Please note:  that pressing 55 only works on mobiles and doesn't allow the police to track your location.

How to report domestic abuse | Northamptonshire Police (northants.police.uk)

Our first priority is to protect you and any children you have. If the situation is an emergency an officer will attend and, if proportionate, necessary and lawful to do so, arrest the perpetrator, and take action to protect you from further harm – giving you time to think.

Report it

If you're a victim of domestic abuse, or know someone who is, and there's an emergency that's ongoing or life is in danger, call 999 now. If you have a hearing or speech impairment, use our textphone service 18000 or text us on 999 if you’ve pre-registered with the emergencySMS service.

Other ways to report:

  • online
  • by calling 101 (If you have a hearing or speech impairment, use our textphone service on 18001 101)
  • in the safety of your local police station (if you require a translator, we can provide someone initially by phone and later in person)

How we can help straight away

Our officers will make sure that you're dealt with respectfully and spoken to away from the person responsible for the abuse. If you've been physically injured, it’s important that your injuries are examined by a doctor. We'll arrange medical care, if necessary.

Staying in touch

We'll stay in contact with you and see you through the whole investigation. Our aim is to contact you within 24 hours of you reporting the offence to let you know what’s happening.

We'll also give you a dedicated phone number, so you can call us directly to find out how your case is going or talk about anything that might be worrying you.

We work alongside highly trained non-police advisers who can assist with aftercare for you and your family.

If you need to attend court for any reason there are also support services available so that you don't feel overwhelmed or alienated by the legal process.
