Providing safe and timely access to supports and services is at the heart of what we do. The Province of Alberta is committed to addressing family violence and, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue supporting vulnerable Albertans.
Isolation is a risk factor for family violence, so during this time of physical social distancing, we encourage everyone to stay socially connected. Consider staying connected with family, friends, colleagues and community however you can: through phone, text, video chat or social media.
Family Violence Info Line
We are encouraging Albertans experiencing family violence to call the Family Violence Info Line. The trained staff on the line can provide advice and support, and information on supports and services available in the caller’s area. Read and share the Family Violence during COVID-19 Info Sheet.
Please note: The Family Violence Info Line will continue to help Albertans get connected to the right information and supports. They are doing their best to meet the increased demand. However, Albertans may experience higher than normal wait times to reach someone.
Staff are still available to respond to public questions and concerns. Contact FCSS 403.600.9066 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
