Dec 10, 2021Coronavirus (COVID-19), Latest News, Our Services

Do you know what domestic violence looks like?

Content Warning: This episode describes experiences of domestic violence. For some people, this could feel overwhelming. If you need to talk to someone, support is available. Please call Lifeline on 131114.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, reports have shown that all types of violence against women and girls has intensified into what is now referred to as the ‘”shadow pandemic”, and in Australia, service providers reported a two thirds increase in clients.

So how do you know what domestic violence looks like, especially in the changing landscape of COVID-19? What has it been like to serve on the frontline of the shadow pandemic? How can survivors get support, and can we end gender-based violence? What can we do in practical ways to support survivors?

  • Achut Thuc, Yarra Public Housing Mental Health Project Coordinator
  • Maryan Mohamed, Health and Wellbeing Concierge
  • Rebekah Pozega, Counselling Case Worker
