Domestic Abuse

Standing Together Against Domestic Abuse

Standing Together Against Domestic Abuse is the largest ever Essex wide domestic abuse campaign.

Domestic abuse quoteEssex Police and Essex County Council launched a new and exciting campaign to encourage more victims of domestic abuse to seek help and support.

There’s lots of information on our website about domestic abuse and how Essex Police and our partners can help victims and survivors to leave an abusive relationship or stay safe within one.

The campaign is also supported by Southend and Thurrock Unitary Authorities, all borough councils in Essex and organisations across the county who work with victims and survivors of abuse.

Victims of domestic abuse

Information on what domestic abuse is, how to report it, what happens once you report it and stories from survivors are on this section of the website.

You can also find out the latest news and information on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

How to support Friends and Family

If you are worried or concerned about a friend or family member there’s lots of information on our website about how Essex Police can help you. Please don’t hesitate to contact the police or any agency with your questions or concerns which will be listened to by trained staff who can provide advice and guidance. Please see our 'Help in Essex' and 'Help across the UK' sections for more details

Summer 2014

During the summer of 2014, we launched our Standing Together Campaign which encouraged the public to take a picture of their feet and share it on social media using the hashtag #TweetYourFeet and #NoToDomesticAbuse to show their support for victims and survivors of domestic abuse.

The campaign was a huge success and was supported by thousands of people. Within the first 24 hours of the campaign, the hashtag #TweetYourFeet and #NoToDomesticAbuse generated more than 2.2 million impressions and, during the whole campaign, generated almost eight million online impressions of posts and pictures.

We know the campaign encouraged people who were living in an abusive relationship to contact the police for the first time and seek help and advice, so we would like to thank everyone who supported the campaign, especially those who tweeted their feet and most importantly helped us to share information about domestic abuse.
