Domestic violence tears lives and families apart.
We need to put an end to domestic violence because there is simply no excuse for abuse.
No one should be given a reason to fear for their life. No one should have to suffer at the hands of someone who should love and protect them.
The Morrison Government has launched a new awareness campaign, Help is Here, to ensure people experiencing domestic, family and sexual violence know where to get help during COVID-19.
This is part of the Government’s $150 million Domestic Violence Support Package to help support services meet demand during these unprecedented times.
Free and confidential counselling is available 24/7 online and over the phone. If you or someone you know needs support contact 1800RESPECT (1800 737 732) 1800respect.org.au or MensLine Australia (1300 789 978) mensline.org.au.
For urgent medical or police help freecall Triple Zero (000).
