During the lockdown, there has been a significant increase in domestic violence. If you have been subject to violence or abuse at home, you can make use of the Safe Spaces at Boots stores. These are being provided under the banner ‘UK SAYS NO MORE’. All Boots UK stores will facilitate their consultation rooms as Safe Spaces, enabling victims of domestic abuse to access specialist domestic abuse support.
Ask at the healthcare counter to use the Safe Space. The Safe Space will have information on national helplines and how to download the Bright Sky app, which provides information on local, specialist domestic abuse services and other resources. You will be able to make telephone calls, use WiFi and find sympathetic support.
