Read Between The Lines with new Gwent Police campaign

Gwent Police have launched a new campaign encouraging people to #ReadBetweenTheLines and help those who may be suffering from domestic abuse.

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Jeff Cuthbert, is supporting the campaign and praised Gwent Police’s focus on tackling all forms of abuse.

He urged people not to suffer in silence, but to speak out and report domestic violence: “We know that domestic violence is already significantly under-reported in our communities and the national lockdown means that, sadly, we expect incidents to increase.

“Chief Constable Pam Kelly and I have been very clear that Gwent Police, and our partner agencies, are here to help.

“Working together we can provide you with the help and specialist support you need to end the abuse and ensure it doesn’t happen again.

“I fully support campaigns such as this to encourage people to read between the lines and help people who are suffering domestic abuse.

If you are a victim, or are worried about someone you know, you can call the Live Fear Free helpline 24/7 for advice and support;
