Home Office's Domestic Abuse Covid-19 Campaign

Fri 15 May 2020

The Home Office has worked with a number of key partners and charities to launch a campaign to raise awareness that the coronavirus (COVID-19) household isolation instructions do not apply to those escaping domestic abuse. The campaign aims to inform the public that police response and support services remain available too.

The attached partner and employer packs aim to enable stakeholders and employers to reassure members of the public of this message. The packs include a link to download the campaign assets which you can use to disseminate the campaign message. This includes posters, leaflets, social media assets and animations.

We would really appreciate your support in sharing this information with relevant stakeholders and employers in your network. As you know, people who are affected by domestic abuse may be harder to reach at this time and we really appreciate your support in raising awareness of this important message.
