Dyfed Powys Police – helplines

Information from Dyfed Powys Police regarding helplines and below is a link to the latest list of the details for Community Support.

Since the government imposed social distancing measures, we have seen a decrease in domestic abuse reports.
This is concerning as we fear people might feel less able to access advice and support while at home with their abuser, and are suffering in silence.

We would like to reassure you that Dyfed Powys Police and others – are here for you.
There is still support available, and reports will continue to be dealt with swiftly.

They have put together information on reporting abuse and how to use the ’55’ silent solution, as well as contact numbers for local and national support services on our website:

Please call 999 in an emergency.
