Pandemic Paradox: When Home Is Not Safe for Children

We are being told to stay home to stop the spread of the coronavirus, but home isn’t always a safe space, especially for children living in situations of violence, where physical, psychological and sexual abuse occurs. We'll be speaking to the Women's Centre for Change about the impact of Covid-19 on children’s vulnerability to sexual violence and exploitation, and how we all need to play a part to end this cycle of abuse.
