The UN has described gender-based, family and domestic violence as the shadow “pandemic within a pandemic.” Those affected by violence are likely to be at even greater risk during COVID-19. MAWS has worked with family violence organizations across Canada to develop a fact sheet on the three considerations for supporting those affected by intimate partner violence during the pandemic. Access the complete fact sheet here: MAWS LN-Safety-COVID-19-PDF-1
If you or someone you know is feeling unsafe or seeking domestic violence support services, the Domestic Violence Helpline is available 24/7: 1-877-977-0007.
