Do you support patients affected by family and domestic violence?
3 September 2020
Our new Family and Domestic Violence Strategy 2020-23 explains how we can help.
Family and domestic violence is a complex issue. It affects people in different ways and everybody has a role to play in addressing it.
If you’re concerned about a patient, read our Family and Domestic Violence Strategy 2020-23 to find out what services we offer that they can access.
We provide payments, services and referrals to help people affected by family and domestic violence.
We work closely with organisations that help with family and domestic violence. Through our referral partners, we:
- connect people to the support they need, when they need it
- learn from their expertise
- unite with them against family and domestic violence.
We know that by continuing to connect across government and with community organisations, we can achieve more. Together we can better support people and drive cultural change. Our strategy outlines our plan to achieve this.
Family and domestic violence: it’s time to say enough.
Find out more about the support we offer customers on our Payment and Service Finder.
During the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, we’re telling you about the support we have available.
The eLearning has been developed for health professionals to connect patients to the support services they need.
