Covid-19: Our Commitment Remains Unchanged23 Mar 2020
During these uncertain times Grampian Women’s Aid would like to let you know we are still providing all support services.
However, this pandemic means adapting our ways of working – including providing our service over the phone, online, by text or by email. Women seeking support during this time should still reach out to us by calling 01224 593381 or emailing email@example.com or visiting http://grampian-womens-aid.com/contact-us/
Our staff can still help with the same safety planning, emotional support and referrals for other services that they would do in person. Our response to the coronavirus pandemic is under constant review, and we will make decisions about the provision of our service based on information as it becomes available, taking into account the safety and well being of our staff and women, children and young people we support. Our commitment to supporting women, children and young people experiencing domestic abuse remains unchanged.
Scotland’s Domestic Abuse and Forced Marriage Helpline is also available 24/7 via phone on 0800 027 1234, email firstname.lastname@example.org or web chat at www.sdafmh.org.uk. Specially trained staff are available to offer support and information for anyone experiencing domestic abuse, those concerned about someone else and professionals with questions.
We recognise at this time it may be especially difficult for women to get in touch with us directly. If that’s the case, perhaps consider, if you can and it’s safe to do so, asking a trusted friend or relative to contact us, or the 24 hour helpline, on your behalf.
