Protect 999, go online

Thank you for helping to keep our emergency 999 phone lines free.
More and more of you are using our online services for non-emergencies and this is making a huge difference in making sure that 999 services can respond quickly to those who need them most.
Many of the calls we receive can be resolved online. So for all non-emergencies please try visiting our website first.

If home doesn’t feel like the safest place to be, you can contact us on Live Chat where specially trained officers can provide support and help keep you safe. Remember, in an emergency always call 999.

Debt Support

The National Debtline have created a Coronavirus information Hub where you can find help if you are financially affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
You can find information on what to do if you have been made redundant or are at risk of redundancy. They also cover the help available to anybody with bills or debts that they cannot afford to pay because of the outbreak.

Government guidance

You must stay at home. The single most important action we can all take is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.
You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. More information is available on the government website
This guidance is the law and we will continue to enforce it to keep everyone safe.
