Violence can be psychological, physical, material, financial, sexual or latent. It can also be honour-related. The Centre Against Domestic Violence helps women, men and children in Jämtland Municipality who have been/are experiencing violence in close relationships.
Together, we set future goals, create strategies and ways to achieve them. Calls are free and confidential. You can call to book an appointment yourself or to speak to someone for advice, though this can also be booked via a social worker, healthcare professional or the police.
We keep no records or journals, so one can remain anonymous. According to the social services act, we are obliged to report a situation where children are at risk for maltreatment.
