Lists organisations and services who can help if you are experiencing abuse, or if you've experienced abuse in the past.

About this resource

If you have been abused, it can be hard to take the first step in seeking help. It may feel especially if you have tried to talk about the issue to friends, family or professionals and have not had a response that helped you.

These pages list organisations and services who may be able to help if you are experiencing abuse, or have done in the past. The organisations listed are mainly national organisations in England and Wales. Citizens Advice or the NHS services finder may have more information on local organisations.

It may also help to read our information on trauma, abuse by health and social care workers, post-traumatic stress disorder and self-esteem.
