Domestic violence is a pattern of power, control and coercion. Abuse is not just physical, trust your intuition. If something does not feel right to you, then it’s not OK.
If you are being abused, remember it’s not your fault. Violence is never okay. No one deserves to be abused, and we are always here to help you. At Women’s Refuge, we won’t judge you. We will listen to you and support you to make choices for your safety.
Our services are confidential and mostly free. The only charge is rent if you use our safe houses, where you and your children can live if you need accommodation urgently. If you can’t afford this, don’t worry – our main concern is your safety.
