Family and domestic violence support

Everyone deserves to feel safe in their own home. The Specialised Family Violence Service team is dedicated to helping people build healthy relationships and live in violence-free homes by providing support through a range of counselling services.


Our qualified and compassionate counsellors support people dealing with family and domestic violence, which is often complicated by other social issues such as drug use, childhood trauma, PTSD, anxiety and depression.
