Shift’s goal is to significantly reduce and prevent domestic violence in Alberta. Shift has written an issues brief exploring the value of informal networks, and how best to support those networks to effectively respond to the needs of individuals impacted by domestic violence. While formal services and supports are critical, research shows that informal networks – including friends and family – play a pivotal role in preventing domestic violence.
