You could try the UK Freephone 24 Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline 0808 2000 247.

Whereabouts in the UK are you? There are a number of women's refuges around the country.

Hope this helps as a start.



Meskina. You are suffering too much. You can phone the domestic violence helpline and they can give you refuge and safety from this "hamarr". You deserve to be treated with kindness and respect. You need to get your son away from him because he is at risk of being hurt, but also of being traumatised and emotionally damaged which will affect him as a man. It could influence the way he treats women when he is an adult.
You need to get away to a safe place, so phone the domestic violence helpline. If you can't find the number, go to the police. They have specialist officers who are trained to deal with violent husbands.
I beg you - get help now.
