Easter is often the worst holiday for those who live in a home where there is violence, the Shelter in Bergen told the newspaper Bergensavisen. They now fear an increase in domestic violence.

The Shelter offers protection to those exposed to violence or abuse from a partner, family member, and others. 

“At Easter, the violence is often more serious than usual,” head of the Shelter in Bergen, Pia Krüger Grønqvist, told the newspaper.

The Shelter emphasizes that more people are calling and expressing concerns. 

However, they have not experienced more people coming to the organization to receive protection compared to what is usual. 

Grønqvist says she believes that the demand for protection will be significantly greater when Norwegian society reopens.
