Being Exposed to Violence

Call Kvinnofridslinjen for support and information

You can call Kvinnofridslinjen if you have questions or if you want to speak to someone about your experiences. We are social workers and nurses with experience of providing support to people in crisis or in difficult life situations.

We are bound by professional secrecy and your call is anonymous. The line is open around the clock and your call is free of charge. Your call will not show on the telephone bill.

Our job is to listen and provide you with professional support. We are able to inform you about appropriate healthcare departments if you have physical or psychological injuries, explain how to report a crime to the police, or list support services available in your area.

The staff is Swedish-speaking but can use an interpreter when necessary. Please hold while the interpreter is being connected. It may take up to 15 minutes. Kvinnofridslinjen can only be accessed in Sweden.

Kvinnofridslinjen is run by the National Centre for Knowledge on Men’s Violence Against Women (NCK), on behalf of the Swedish Government.
