Interpersonal and family violence in the time of COVID-19 and isolation

If you are in a situation of having to isolate with an abusive or violent partner there are strategies that can be taken to protect you and your family. Please reach out (if it is safe) to those who care about you.

If you know someone who is in this situation please reach out and support them.

Navigating interpersonal and family violence is one of the most difficult things even without isolation/restriction. Please look after each other and support each other.
