Cumbria County Council and Cumbria Police are joining forces to reach out to people across the county who are at risk from domestic abuse. A new campaign launches this week to encourage victims, or people who are concerned about their friends, family or neighbours, to report incidents to Cumbria Police.

Report domestic abuse:
Call 101, or report online at www.cumbria.police.uk.
If you are in immediate danger, always call 999 and ask for the police.
Report domestic abuse to the police on 101 or online.
Everyone is entitled to live safely and without fear of violence or abuse.
Domestic abuse is always unacceptable.
If you, or someone you know is suffering from domestic abuse, help is available.
Friends, family, neighbours and community members can be a vital lifeline to those living with domestic abuse. If you are worried that someone you know may be a victim of domestic abuse, reassure them that the police and support services are still there to help and direct them to sources of support.
For anyone who feels they are at risk of abuse, it is important to remember that there is help and support available to you, including police response, online support, helplines, refuges and other services. You are not alone.
The household isolation instruction as a result of coronavirus does not apply if you need to leave your home to escape domestic abuse.
