New campaign raises domestic abuse profile

Lincolnshire Police has launched a campaign to support families suffering domestic abuse, especially during the coronavirus lockdown period.

New posters have been produced and sources of help and advice are highlighted for anyone who needs them

The campaign went live last week as the Police mobilised agencies, charities and the public to raise awareness of the dangers of domestic abuse, given the increased pressures families may feel during lockdown. 

As Lincolnshire Police's Assistant Chief Constable, Kerrin Wilson, set out last week; "Domestic abuse will remain a priority for us. We will be continuing to encourage those who endure abuse to seek help and we will also reach out to those who are concerned about their own behaviour. To that end we have produced posters which we will be circulating across the county in various ways."

Please view and download the posters and share with friends and anyone you know who you think might be affected.
