Is your relationship no longer making you happy?

Sometimes we feel a little unsure about our relationships, maybe something has changed and you aren't as happy as you used to be, are scared and feel as though you're 'walking on eggshells'. 

You are never alone and there are people that care about you and want you to feel safe and happy. The first step is to reach out and talk to somebody; let that weight off your shoulders. 

If you are in need of urgent, emergency help, always call 999. If you cannot speak, press 55 on your keypad and the police will know it is an emergency. Listen out closely for instructions so help can arrive as quickly as possible.

Domestic abuse impacts so many of us, and it must always be taken seriously - see some important details below for specialist support available, 24/7, for you when you need it most.
