Most women will have developed ways to keep themselves and their children safe, but they may not have a formalised plan. Our staff can help you develop a personalised, practical safety plan that includes ways to remain safe if you are still in the relationship, planning to leave, or have left. Safety plans include strategies for different environments such as home, work and in the community.
If you are experiencing an emergency call the police on 000.
It does not matter whether you are leaving, thinking to leave, or have already left, we have the services and supports to assist you. Victim-survivors need quality services and specialist support. You can be confident that our staff have the right skills and knowledge to help you.
If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence and needs help, you can call us directly on (02) 4732 2318
