Help for witnesses and bystanders

If someone in your environment is confronted with domestic violence, make sure they get help! It’s important that someone takes action in order to help both the victim(s) and the perpetrator. After all, in the Netherlands, domestic violence is punishable by law. If you suspect domestic violence at the homes of family, friends or neighbours and you’re worried or there are children involved, please call Wende. Even if the severity of the situation is unclear to you, you can still do something for the victim or the perpetrator.

If you are afraid to call, but still want to do something, you can tell them about our website. You could also print the leaflet or flyer and give it to the victim or the perpetrator of domestic violence. This could be the first step towards a solution!
