The working group was pulled together by Shine and Women's Refuge in collaboration with Police. Spokeswoman for Shine, Holly Carrington, said the group was looking at ways to work together to overcome barriers that Covid-19 presents.
"We are aiming to ensure consistency in responding to changing needs during the lockdown," said Carrington.
Police data indicates there have been 1155 family harm incidents from March 8 to April 8, with an average of 36 per day.
The highest recorded day, 57, occurred in the first weekend of the lockdown.
“We know there could be more that aren’t being reported,” said Assistant Commissioner Sandra Venables.
“We realise this is a hard time for some families and we want them to know Police are there for them. We know that for some people, home right now may be an uncomfortable or scary place."
