DOMESTIC abuse victims in Doncaster are being asked to report all attacks they suffer, as a new website and helpline launches in the town.

The service is encouraging everyone to use the free website - www.doncasterdomesticabuse.co.uk - and to examine their own relationship for signs of abuse.

The site is run by Doncaster Council, NHS, police and various charities.

To coincide with the website launch a helpline has been set up to make sure people have to call only one number to get a co-ordinated response to their abuse. The number is 01302 326 411.

Detective Chief Inspector Matt Fenwick said: “South Yorkshire Police fully support this website and we treat all allegations and incidents of domestic violence very seriously.

“Domestic violence is a crime and we work closely with all the services in Doncaster to make sure victims are safe once they report an incident.”
