Nexus NI and Covid-19

Due to the unprecedented situation that we are finding ourselves in, Nexus NI has continued to offer counselling support to clients but now through phone or video-based counselling.

Nexus NI is a charity, which has provided counselling to victims of sexual trauma for over

30 years. Usually counselling sessions are held in person through our offices or outreach sites

This has been a challenging time for Nexus NI as we moved from proving face-to-face counselling to offering telephone counselling. Due to our counsellors’ dedication, Nexus have been able to continue to support our vulnerable clients, in a time when they really need us the most. Our physical doors may closed but we remain dedicated to providing the best service we can.

Domestic and Sexual Abuse Helpline

The current lockdown, which has been enforced to stop the spread of coronavirus has led to fears that this will lead to an escalation of abuse and violence against men, women and children. The nature of the lockdown as a result of the pandemic provides an environment that is known to exacerbate domestic and sexual abuse.

We want to reassure everyone that the Freephone Domestic and Sexual Abuse Helpline, managed by Nexus NI, is still operating 24/7 and can provide confidential support to anyone who needs it by our fully trained and experienced operators.
