Help for people experiencing family and domestic violence

Published: 6 December 2023

If you or someone you know is experiencing abuse, there is help available.

If you’re in immediate danger call 000.

Family and domestic violence doesn’t discriminate. It can happen to anyone. It’s always the fault of the person causing the abuse, never the person being abused.

Abuse isn’t always physical violence. It could be controlling behaviour, or emotional, sexual, financial, elder, or technology facilitated abuse.

There are services available to help at any time.

Read about where to get help.
