Statistics show that family violence spikes in December and January. With many of us now heading back to work after a summer break, it's important to remember that for many victims, the workplace is one of the only safe places they can go to for support.

The Commission has been speaking to several organisations about why implementing a family violence policy can help those in need of support. Shine's Communications and Marketing Manager, Holly Carrington, spoke to us about why workplaces should have a Family Violence Policy and the difference it makes.
