This morning at the Home Affairs Committee, I was interested in hearing about this lockdown's impact on domestic abuse reports.
We saw a 49% increase in calls to abuse helplines during the first lockdown so it is right that we continue to monitor the situation in regards to domestic abuse.

If you are experiencing domestic violence and need advice, you can call Juno Women’s Aid on 0808 800 0340. For male survivors, you can call Equation on 0115 960 5556. These are both Nottinghamshire-based charities. The number for the National Domestic Abuse Helpline is 0808 2000 247.
