About DV West
Our services are provided by women, for women and children. We are an inclusive organisation for all woman-identifying people and aim to empower women and children by focusing on their strengths and exploring their hopes for the future.
We provide specialist domestic violence services through four refuges, transitional housing, outreach support, a centralised intake and assessment service, an after hours service, group programs for women and children and in-house counselling.
The ladies at DV West have been the major supporting factor in my recovery. Without this service I would not be where I am now. They are amazing.
The benefits of me having my pets here with me are beyond words. My 2 little dogs are my babies and my family, all I have in this world and to be apart from them at such a horrible time in my life would have been more devastating for me. To be able to see them from my bedroom window gave me peace, comfort and knowing that they were safe with me helped me 100-fold and I can’t thank you enough for having a place to accommodate pets
It’s non-judgemental and understanding. They are there when needed and supportive. I’m thought of and checked in upon
I have enjoyed a lot of the programs they provide for my kids and myself, I have made friends and now know I am not alone
Thank you for not giving up and advocating so I could get a house. The support I have received is just deadly sis.
Do You Need Support?
It does not matter whether you are leaving, thinking to leave, or have already left, we have the services and supports to assist you.
What is Domestic / Family Violence?
Donations – large or small – allow us to provide additional support and programs to more women and children than would otherwise be possible. Together, we can work to support more women and children to live safely and recover from the trauma of domestic or family violence.
