Derbyshire County Council Domestic Abuse Helpline - Children, young people and families who are affected by domestic abuse or violence can get support, including refuge accommodation, by contacting Derbyshire Domestic Abuse Helpline. It's available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and is a single point of contact to get the help you need.
If you tel: 999 from a mobile but it is not safe for you to speak, Silent Solution is a system the police use to assess and respond to your call. Tel: 999 and if it's not safe to respond to the BT operator when they ask what service you want, stay connected. If the operator hears any suspicious noise you'll be transferred to the police.
If nothing is heard you may be asked to press 55 - this will connect you to a police call handler. Listen carefully to their questions and instructions so that they can assess your situation and arrange for assistance. This system means that the police can respond to genuine emergencies when people are in danger and accidental or hoax 999 calls do not distract them.
