If you are at home and are threatened or attacked

Safety Tips

If you are at home and are threatened or attacked:

  • Try to go to a lower risk area of the house – avoid the kitchen or garage where there are likely to be knives or other weapons. Avoid rooms where you might be trapped, such as the bathroom, or where you might be shut into a cupboard or other small space.
  • Get to a room with a telephone or carry a mobile with you.
  • Call 999 and ask for the police. If you cannot speak, listen and respond to instructions by making a noise or tapping. If you are using a mobile phone, you can also silently press 55 when prompted and this will flag that you need help.
  • Contact the 24-hour Scottish Domestic Abuse and Forced Marriage Helpline on 0800 027 1234, or web chat at
  • If you can, think of a safe place for your children to stay safe while your attacker is violent.
  • Or if you are experiencing threat or attack, call 999 and ask for the police
