Domestic Violence ‘Shadow pandemic’ worsening due to isolation


Social distancing guidelines have led many people to feel isolated from family, friends and the outside world.

But the situation is much worse for those going through domestic and family abuse while in self-isolation, as a range of support services are not able to operate face-to-face.
