When our eyes went off women and children – what was the impact of the COVID-19 lockdowns?

During COVID-19 lockdown periods, demand for domestic and family violence support intensifies and needs become more complex. For instance, working from home means that for some survivors their safe place—work—disappears suddenly.


This session looks at how the social service sector can better prepare for future lockdowns, and better respond to the reality that statistically some of our workers will be experiencing domestic and family violence.  

It will consider the latest available research and data about the impacts of the lockdown on domestic and family violence, and feature speakers from organisations who provide frontline domestic and family violence support. 

Date: Monday, 14 June  

Time: 12:00pm to 1:00pm 

Location: Online via Zoom 

This event is part of our COVID-19 Learning Exchange, which asks, in the context of COVID-19, what does it take to create a strong and sustainable service sector to respond to the needs of our community?
