New charge free-help line for victims of domestic violence

A new charge-free help line has been put into operation for victims of domestic violence. The help line (116 006) was introduced by the Bílý Kruh Bezpečí NGO which previously operated paid lines. The new 24-hour charge-free service will be operated by 35 employees, both psychologists and lawyers. It will be open to six callers simultaneously. The paid lines previously received 20 calls a day.
