You may also qualify for the Homeseekers’ Register if the police support the fact that there is a significant risk to you if you stay in your home.
If a crime is taking place or you feel in danger, we would always suggest that you contact the police on 999. If you need to report a crime that has already taken place, you should still call 101.
