Domestic Abuse During Covid 19
Show Notes

In today's episode we chat with Kim Dhillon, domestic abuse and sexual assault counsellor.   For many people, staying home during quarantine is more dangerous than being out. Today, Kim shares some domestic abuse statistics and tells how us how covid 19 has affected these numbers. She also shares how we can support a friend or family member who may be affected by domestic violence. This is something we should all know more about. I learned a lot from this discussion and I hope you will as well.
