West Yorkshire Police is urging fans not to ‘lose it all for football’ after receiving a worryingly high volume of calls relating to domestic abuse incidents during previous major tournaments.
If you are worried about your own behaviour or have been abusive in the past, it is never too late to get help.
If you are experiencing domestic abuse or are worried about someone you know, speak out, we have specially trained officers who are here to help. In a non-emergency you can call 101 and ask for your local Safeguarding Unit, but if a crime is in progress or there is a danger to life call 999.
There are also a number of organisations across West Yorkshire who can offer support and advice : –
- Evolve – for female offenders
- Freedom – supports female victims & male offenders
For more information about support available for both victims and perpetrators of domestic abuse please visit westyorkshire.police.uk/WorldCup18
