Given the pressure that families will be experiencing at the current time Enfield Council have developed an enhanced service to support victims of domestic abuse, involving various Council teams e.g. Housing, Community Safety and external partners including the Police and Voluntary & Community Sector.  The new Domestic Abuse Hub strengthens current arrangements and will help in responding to concerns quickly to reduce risks and ensure the safety of children and vulnerable adults.

The new service has a dedicated free helpline where people who are suffering domestic abuse can contact specialised officers for advice.  Helpline Number: 0800 923 9009.
