Guide to domestic abuse and sexual violence during covid-19 outbreak

To address the heightened risk, Fulfilling Lives Islington and Camden worked in partnership with St Mungo’s, Standing Together, and Homeless Link to create guidance for staff in homeless settings.

Included in the guidelines is advice on:

  • Establishing where domestic abuse and sexual violence has occurred
  • Making contact
  • Conducting phone and face-to-face welfare checks
  • How to make a visit
  • what to do if the client discloses abuse
  • How to get support
