DVassist Counselling Helpline

Monday to Friday, 10am to 7pm AWST (except on public holidays)

If you live in regional, rural or remote Western Australia and you are experiencing family and domestic violence, please call DVassist’s telephone support counselling service. The DVassist helpline support service is free and confidential.

If you don’t speak English, call us and we will connect with TIS National to have an interpreter on the phone with us.  If you are deaf or hearing-impaired, you can contact us via the National Relay Service.

You can contact us if you:

  • are worried about your relationship and are not sure if what you are experiencing is family or domestic violence
  • are experiencing domestic or family violence
  • have experienced domestic and family violence and are wanting counselling
  • are concerned that a friend or family member may be experiencing violence

What to expect when you contact us

We know that talking about family and domestic violence can be difficult, especially for the first time. When you contact DVassist, you will speak with a qualified and experienced counsellor who understands the unique challenges of experiencing family and domestic violence in regional, rural and remote Western Australia.

We will work with you to help identify what you can do and to connect you with the right support services if you’re ready to take that next step.

We can be contacted Monday to Friday, 10am to 7pm (except on public holidays).

You can learn how to stay safe at home and find out more about safety planning and an escape bag checklist.

If you or someone you know is in danger, please call 000.
