If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, call the police on 999.
Many people’s lives have been affected by the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak and this has placed a huge burden on their mental and physical health.
The current situation also means many of the most vulnerable people, including those experiencing domestic abuse or children at risk of harm, are not seen by others as much as they normally would, and they may not be getting the right help.
We want to support people across the city to look out for friends, family and neighbours during the pandemic and beyond, so we have launched the Are you OK? campaign.
You don’t need to be an expert to reach out – we are simply asking you to check in with the people you know, ask them if they are ok and help them to get the right support, if needed.
There are some simple steps you can take to help your friends, family and neighbours during this difficult time.
Have regular conversations with someone and if you see changes that you are worried about, support them to get the right help. If something doesn’t feel quite right, there is usually a reason for it.
