The Accor hotel chain is sheltering people fleeing domestic violence as front-line workers say incidents of household abuse are on the rise as a result of the pressures caused by the COVID-19 crisis.

Accor is housing vulnerable people, including victims of family violence, the homeless and worn-out medical workers in need of alternative accommodation, in its Sydney CBD rooms as well as other beds throughout NSW. The group owns brands such as Ibis, Sofitel and Swissotel.
