Partners from across the Merseyside Resilience Forum (MRF)
are working together to promote local and national support services
for anyone experiencing domestic abuse, with a focus on the new
challenges brought by Coronavirus.
The new campaign is an adaptation of the Government's recent
domestic abuse initiative #YouAreNotAlone, which launched due to
increasing concern about victims needing to self-isolate at home
alongside their perpetrators.
Measures announced over recent weeks to tackle coronavirus
(COVID-19) have seen people's day-to-day life be drastically
altered. These changes are essential to beat coronavirus and
protect our NHS. But we know we have vulnerable people living in
our communities who will be additionally concerned about the
prospect of staying at home for a number of reasons - including
those who have been the victims of domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse is unacceptable in any situation, no matter what
stresses you are under. For anyone who feels they are at risk of
abuse, it is important to remember that there is help and support
available to you.
