Free domestic abuse advice line for employers

Source: Other | | 17/09/2020

A new advice line for employers who are supporting employees experiencing or at risk of domestic abuse has been launched by domestic abuse charity Hestia. The Everyone’s Business Advice Line, which is being funded by the Home Office, will be a point of contact for employers, advising them on how to approach disclosures of domestic abuse by their employees, particularly in light of coronavirus (COVID-19). With more people working remotely from home due to the pandemic, cases of domestic abuse are rising. The advice line will also assist employers in signposting staff to local specialist domestic abuse services.

The Everyone’s Business Advice Line can be contacted on 07770 480437 or email adviceline.EB@hestia.org and the service is open between 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday. Employers can also download an assets pack from the Hestia website, comprising an information brochure, flyer, infographic and social media graphics.

One in four women and one in six men will experience domestic abuse at some point in their lifetime.
