COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and Domestic Abuse Services

 

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is the name for the disease caused by a new type of coronavirus which emerged in China in late 2019. 

In light of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and in response to national Public Health advice, some changes to our domestic abuse services have been made. 

The Sutton Domestic Abuse One Stop Shop which usually runs on a Wednesday morning as a drop-in session will be closed until further notice. Our group programmes and face to face support have also stopped until further notice. 

However, support is still available by contacting Transform on 020 8092 7569 (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) or email transformsutton@cranstoun.org.uk . 

In an emergency, always dial 999. 

Our teams are working hard to make sure there is always someone at the end of the phone for people who need it most and they will be looking at new ways to support people over the coming weeks. 

Updates on any changes to domestic abuse services will be published on the Not Alone in Sutton and Transform Sutton website on an on-going basis. 

Sutton Council are providing the latest information and advice on the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation on their website.
