Our Vision

A community free from family violence, where everyone feels safe.


Safe use of technology

Technology is a big part of our everyday lives and is widely used to source information and communicate with others.  We all have a right to use technology without fear of abuse, but we recommend women experiencing family violence be cautious and mindful of their safety when using technology.

Be aware that others may be able to check your computer and mobile devices to monitor your online activity, phone calls and emails.  If you are concerned, try to use the computer of a trusted friend or relative, or one at your local library, university or internet café.  Learn more about the safe use of technology with the Smartsafe website by clicking here.

We provide a broad range of integrated services to support women and children who are responding to family violence.
