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