We are a confidential, free, support and signposting service for anyone affected by Domestic Abuse. Our aim is to improve the lives of those affected by domestic abuse including those seeking help to change their behaviour. 

When you call us, our well-trained call takers will listen carefully and non-judgmentally to what you say before providing information appropriate to your particular situation.  The decision as to what to do next remains with you.  

Our USP is that we have contact details for around 177 specialist support services in Hertfordshire that could help you with your specific situation. The Helpline is a registered charity and its services contribute to the countywide drive to reduce DA, FGM, Forced Marriage, Honour Based Abuse and Domestic Homicide under the Herts Sunflower Partnership.

You can contact us by phone on 08 088 088 088 or, if you prefer, email us on support@hertsdomesticabusehelpline.org but please be careful to cover your tracks.
