Help Us to Help You

If you have been the victim of violence, no matter who you are, how or when you were hurt, South Wales Police are here to help.

Specialist staff will support you by:

  • Listening to your experience
  • Explaining all options available to you
  • Working with you to agree what happens next
  • Keeping you informed and updated

Making contact with the police does not commit you to taking any further action.

However, by reporting what happened to you, you may be able to prevent it happening again or prevent someone else from being hurt.

If you’ve been hurt or witnessed someone else being harmed call 101 anytime. In an emergency always dial 999.

Where can you get help and support?
