EDVOS Family Violence Service Statement
EDVOS is the specialist family violence service for the eastern areas of Melbourne.
We support all women, including women from the LGBTI communities, their children, pets and other animals, who are responding to any form of family violence.
We’re committed to assisting all people, regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age and ability within our community and can also provide access to other family violence services that are most suitable to the individual’s unique needs and goals.
We acknowledge that family violence can take many forms such as intimate partner violence, child abuse, elder abuse, carer abuse, parental abuse and sibling abuse.
