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.
Mark43 is a US-based public safety software platform allowing agencies to manage, share, collect, and analyse information.
