Domestic violence help

• Family Law
• Child Protection
• Criminal Injury Compensation
• Family Violence Restraining Orders
• Non-legal Support
• Social Support
Offers intoxicated people a safe place to sleep the night. Clients receive two light meals, showers, clothes laundered and are given a bed to sleep. The Shelter also works in conjunction with the Ord Valley Aboriginal Health Services to offer a monthly clinic for clients where they also have access to counseling.
Provides support and information, counselling and accommodation for homeless women and their children who are victims of mental, physical and domestic violence and abuse.
We are here to provide crisis support 24/7 to yarn with you without judgement and provide a confidential, culturally safe space to yarn about your needs, worries or concerns. We will work with you to explore options for on-going support. You know you will be connected to another Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person who will understand where you are coming from and value knowing HOW to listen, without judgement or shame.
Over the past two years DVassist has been offering a telephone and webchat counselling service as part of a pilot project funded by the Commonwealth Government.
The project is now complete and consequently our counselling services are no longer operating as of Friday 21 October 2022.
