In Australia, on average one woman a week is killed by a current or former partner. In October this year, nine women were killed.

It can be difficult to spot the signs of domestic violence as it can take many forms: physical, financial, emotional, sexual, social, spiritual & technological.

Finding the right words to help your loved one can seem daunting. A helpful starting place is to come at the conversation from a position of care, being sure not to take an accusatory position. Let them know you are worried, talk about some of the things you've noticed, ask if they are OK in their current relationship.

Victims don't always realise they are in a DV situation or don't want to make the situation potentially worse by acting upon it. Instead, you can support them by making a safety plan and offering them resources/support.

If you are in this situation, please come and speak to us so we can help and support you during this difficult time.
