Domestic violence information

Domestic and family violence is a crime and should be reported to the police.

It exists in every community and can affect anyone, regardless of gender, sexual identity, race, age, culture, ethnicity, religion, disability, economic status or location.

Domestic and family violence is an abuse of power and control that usually involves a pattern of violent, abusive or intimidating behaviour carried out by a partner, ex-partner, carer or family member to control, dominate or instil fear.

It can be physical, but also verbal, psychological, emotional, social, financial, sexual or spiritual and religious. It also includes harassment and stalking, including online harassment.

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic and family violence, help and support is available.
