Here’s some great advice from the Domestic Violence Action Centre about how to deal with DV in an isolation situation.

If you have to stay at home with a violent partner, here are some key points to consider:
• Identify safe areas of the house where there are ways to escape if possible.
• If possible, have a phone charged and accessible at all times with numbers to call.
• Call the police on 000 if things escalate and you are concerned for your safety. Notify the police if there are any Covid-19 concerns on site.
• Let trusted friends and neighbours know of your situation and develop a plan and visual signal for when you need help.
• Make a habit of backing the car into the driveway and keeping it fuelled.
• Your life and your children’s lives are important. If you must leave for safety reasons, then do so. If you have been exposed or you are sick park in a safe location and stay in the car while contacting a GP or hospital nearby to organise to get tested and to discuss quarantine options.
• Call DV Connect on 1800 811 811 to see if they can support with other accommodation options if needed.
