During COVID-19 Shakti is still running as an ‘essential service’

The lockdown period and the resulting social isolation has escalated risks to women and children who are already unsafe at home. It is important that Shakti’s services remain open; we have contingency plans for our services. However, we will be taking safety measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our clients safe. We will be following state and federal guidelines and will keep up to date with any changes.

Our services will remain open for Asian, Middle Eastern and African women and children affected by domestic / family violence and who need our services.
