Report assaults

Report any physical assault or abuse to both your local doctor or hospital, and Gardai, even if you do not want to take legal action at the time.

Apart from being essential to have injuries treated properly, doctor/hospital and Garda reports can be useful as vital evidence should you proceed at some point to legal action.

Ask someone you trust to accompany you to the doctor, hospital or Gardaí station if you need some support.

Here is a list of local Gardaí stations.
