The association for the prevention and handling of violence in the family (Spavo) will host a Skype seminar at 6.30pm on Thursday to discuss domestic violence in times of self-isolation.
Spavo’s scientific director and social worker Andri Andronikou will be the speaker.
Those interested in participating in the web seminar should send their personal information to [email protected]
The association launched a free text service on Monday at 99 98 4042 alongside the 1440 hotline where people can report suspected domestic violence cases.
“If it is dangerous for you to talk, send a message,” Spavo posted on Facebook.
The line will be operating 24/7 with specialised professionals in collaboration with Cyprus telecommunication authority (Cyta).
