support for people who experience domestic abuse
Domestic abuse: codeword scheme and other help during coronavirus
The new Ask for ANI (Action Needed Immediately) codeword scheme has been developed to allow victims of domestic abuse to access support from the safety of their local pharmacy. Anyone experiencing domestic abuse and in need of help can ask for ‘ANI’ (pronounced like the name Annie) in participating pharmacies. The pharmacy will offer a private space, provide a phone and ask if the person requires support from the police or other domestic abuse services.
