Support for female victims of domestic violence
If you are a female victim of domestic violence, you are not alone. In Hull it is estimated that 24,690 women and 18,468 children will experience domestic violence each year.
If you are a victim of domestic violence, contact us in confidence at the domestic abuse partnership (DAP) for help on 01482 318 759.

If you are calling from the local area the telephone number will not appear on your bill. If you use a mobile phone the number will show up on your statement and in your dialled numbers list unless you delete it. If we ring you, our number will not show up on your phone.
You will be allocated a support worker who will talk with you in confidence, and discuss what to do next. This could include discussing how we can take action to improve your safety and your children’s safety, how we can take action against abusers, and find you emergency temporary accommodation if needed.
If you can’t visit our offices to meet with your support worker (for example, if you have a physical disability) we can visit you at home if it is safe to do so, or arrange to meet you at a more convenient location.
The DAP also offer -
- legal advice and support throughout the Criminal Justice System and in attending the solicitors or court
- housing advice and support
- benefits advice
- referral to specialist support for children and young people
- referral to health, drug and alcohol services
In an emergency, call 999. The police take domestic violence seriously and can take action against abusers.
