I think this is REALLY IMPORTANT .

In the last week, my thoughts did turn to the abuse victims, when they were given advice to call the Samaritans or other Charities to offer help.
A ridiculous suggestion when we all know 'Abuse Victims' are controlled and can't make phone calls within ear shot of the abuser, who at this pint in time is constantly in the same 4 walls.

It's not only adult abuse though is it ? All the children who will now be suffering in silence and isolation due to parental alcoholism and the inevitable situations from either lack of it or too much within the home. Kids can generally go to their room and keep out of a bad situation when dad or mum come home plastered and vicious. Pretend they are asleep, but they hear what goes on , even so. Now they are confined, and although there have been kids found out and about when they shouldn't be, do we really know why they are escaping their homes at this time ?
I suggest we all keep our ears, eyes, and senses open wide as just one child or one adult protected in Wirral is one of our own saved.

This is the latest update, giving clarity the 'Abuse Victims' CAN leave their home and find help if needed .


An estimated 1.6 million women and 786,000 men experienced domestic abuse in England and Wales in the year ending March 2019, according to the Office for National Statistics.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52081280

Domestic abuse victims are allowed to leave home to seek help at refuges despite rules to stop coronavirus spreading, the home secretary has said.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, Priti Patel said current restrictions telling people to stay indoors were even harder for people whose "home is not the safe haven it should be".

She also told abusers: "You will not get away with your crimes."

It comes after police warned the new rules made victims more vulnerable.

Campaigners also warn that domestic abuse has already increased elsewhere in the world as more people at risk from abuse are forced to stay indoors with their abusers due to the pandemic.




"I am acutely aware that the necessary guidelines about social distancing and self-isolation may leave the victims of hidden crime, such as domestic abuse and child sexual abuse, feeling especially isolated, vulnerable and exposed," said Ms Patel, in her newspaper column.

"But my message to every potential victim is simple: we have not forgotten you and we will not let you down.

"And my message to every perpetrator is equally as simple: you will not get away with your crimes."

She said the government would protect victims, saying it has given £1.6bn to local councils to help those in need and was working with charities.

The National Domestic Abuse Helpline was also continuing to operate, she said.

"Whilst our advice is to stay at home, anyone who is at risk of, or experiencing, domestic abuse, is still able to leave and seek refuge. Refuges remain open, and the police will provide support to all individuals who are being abused - whether physically, emotionally, or otherwise," she added.

If you, or someone you know, have been affected by domestic abuse or violence, these organisations may be able to help. If you are in immediate danger, you should dial 999.

It's hard to understand what it must be like to be terrified 24/7 . What a terrible way to live , and from your post, Snowshoes, would seem to be a 'pandemic' of a different nature.

My parents taught me you Never Hit a Woman Period
A woman is to be held gently and to be Cherished and Loved
If saw a woman being abused would NOT walk pass and think NOT my problem would put my self in Front of woman and escort into nearest shop.
Even thoe might get Punched better than living with the Shame of doing Nothing if girl ended up in Hospital would eat away at me what If so better to always throw in and Fight.
I believe in Protecting the weak even thoe weak myself but one voice carries weight and maybe then 2 and then 3 and ect
