ENSURE YOUR SAFETY

If you or your children are in danger, it is important you act now!

If it is an emergency, you have been threatened or feel unsafe you should not hesitate to CALL THE POLICE emergency number (000 in Australia). The authorities and the laws of our countries are put there by God for our good and for the good of all men. It is important we use them to be safe.

If you are not in immediate danger you can reach out to a domestic violence service (for instance, 1800 RESPECT in Australia). They will help you plan for you and your children's safety. They will explain what is happening to you and give you appropriate support to understand how the law can help you. If you don't know a local service google "domestic violence emergency" and your city, state or province name.  Most domestic violence services will also provide ongoing support and referral to other services you may need.

HELP IS AVAILABLE

Brothers and sisters in some countries have set up Christadelphian Support Services which operate telephone help services. Some of them provide their own telephone, skype or in person counselling services to brothers and sisters. Some are even willing to do this for brothers or sisters in need in different places without access to their own service.

They can also refer you to specialist or professional services for various needs you may have including financial support, emergency housing, depression, trauma, grief or other counselling.
