Safe Haven attracts attention in prominent National Magazine

SafeHaven Executive Director, Jaeneen Cunningham featured in the June Marie Claire special report on domestic violence and abuse during the COVID 19 lockdown: Alone. Afraid. Abused: The Terrifying Rise Of Domestic Violence In Isolation.

The report highlights the difficulty refuges and other crisis accommodation are having assisting the growing number of women seeking assistance, and raises the spectre of a potential spike in domestic abuse after the lockdown ends.

As well as Safe Haven, the article features contributions from The Northern Beaches Women's Shelter and reports from Women's Safety NSW
