Domestic violence and abuse services directory
Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting everyone's day to day life. But for a victim and their children experiencing or witnessing domestic abuse, the impact is significant and can put them in danger.
South Tyneside Council and partners are here for you and your family and services, although they might be delivered differently, are still available. You still have options and we will do everything to help you.
For more information about the help and support available, see Coronavirus (COVID-19): Domestic abuse support
