Support for women in need – the Violence against women support hotline.

Available round the clock, 365 days a year and free of charge: the Violence against women support hotline 0800/116016 offers victims a way of receiving competent advice securely, anonymously and regardless of disability whenever they need. Our counsellors provide women with confidential support and if needed can help them find appropriate local support options in their area. This new support service thus caters to a concrete social need and plays an important role in directing victims, relatives of victims, friends and professionals to appropriate support resources.
