The Government have launched a new code word scheme, where if you are experiencing domestic abuse and need immediate help, you can ask for ‘ANI’ in any participating pharmacy.
ANI stands for Action Needed Immediately but is pronounced Annie. If a pharmacy has the ‘Ask for ANI’ logo on display, it means they are ready to help you.
The pharmacy will offer you a private space, provide you with a phone and ask if you need support from the police or other domestic abuse support services.
You can also find more sources of support and advice on our Coping with Family Pressures advice page.
