The Violence against Women Support Hotline advises women affected by all forms of abuse: domestic and sexual abuse, forced marriage, people trafficking and genital mutilation.
Advice is provided anonymously, confidentially and with the help of interpreters in several languages.
The female advisors are qualified experts who are experienced in giving advice to women affected by violence. They provide a psychosocial initial consultation and crisis intervention and arrange contact with a local support institution where required.
Acquaintances, relatives and specialists supporting women can also contact the Support Hotline.
The advisory service is available to anyone seeking help, irrespective of social and ethnic origin, religion as well as sexual orientation and identity, and includes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexual and queer people (LGBTIQ).
