Local Voices 029: Domestic Violence and Abuse


In the first six months of the COVID-19 pandemic, 521 families were supported by the outreach department of Saoirse Women's Refuge - triple the figure of that in years previous.

Evidence also suggests that the number of domestic violence cases has increased since the onset of COVID-19 worldwide.

Outreach and prevention manager with Saoirse, Nadine O'Brien, speaks to Hayden Moore about domestic violence, the global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign, and more.
