We are grateful for the financial support we receive via donations, which allows us to continue helping those in regional, rural, and remote Western Australia experiencing domestic or family violence.
All donations to DVassist are committed to bringing an end to family domestic violence in regional, rural, and remote areas of WA.
DVassist’s vision is to provide access to free counselling, resources, and additional support services for anyone impacted by family and domestic violence in regional, rural, and remote Australia. Our online directory service and information hub provides a fast and efficient online tool for anyone experiencing domestic or family violence who needs to find help. This directory is a unique service as users can tailor the resources to their local area and specific needs.
Presently, the online directory functions across 33 key areas and is on track to have all regional areas in WA covered. Funds donated will help to support necessary ongoing maintenance of and updates to this directory.
Funding has allowed for the development of a call centre to provide regional telephone counselling for those involved in family or domestic violence situations. This service offers people the opportunity to have confidential, tailored discussions with informed, qualified, and compassionate counsellors who are familiar with the additional challenges of living in regional, rural, and remote areas. As a result of generous donations, we are able to keep extending the hours of this service to provide support when it is needed most.
DVassist also provides live online web chat function available through our website. This third avenue of silent support gives even greater flexibility to those in need to connect with networks to assist them in making the changes to improve their family or domestic violence situation.
DVassist operates with a very small administration team to ensure that the funds received by the organisation are dedicated to delivering real change through effective support and connection.
