Crisis Support

 
 
 
 

On average, 17 adults every day are hospitalised due to assault by a partner or family member (Source: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare). Along with the stress of being confined in our homes we are experiencing an unsettling increase in instances of family violence perpetrated against both men and women. Domestic violence can affect anyone in the community, and it does not discriminate against young or old, rich or poor, gender, ethnicity or religion. It is predicted that for every three months lock down continues an additional 15 million cases of domestic violence will occur worldwide (Source: UN populations fund). There is no shame in being a victim. Abuse is never okay!
