Agencies working together to help domestic abuse victims

The Department of Infrastructure, through its Housing Division, is working with other agencies to help anyone who suffers domestic abuse during lockdown.

The DOI says the impact of lockdown on wellbeing is magnified particularly if an individual is suffering abuse.

Officials say support services around the matter are still open, that leaving your home to escape violence or seek help is not a breach of Covid-19 regulations and when children are at risk consent for sharing information isn't needed.

The department has also published a list of available helplines and services for anyone who may need them - details of those are available on our website.
