Domestic violence services and support in NSW

Psychological and physical safety are a human right. Coercion, intimidation, demeaning, threatening, and frightening behaviour is unacceptable and has no place in a relationship. Tactics of abuse and physical and sexual violence do not change on their own.

Relationships Australia NSW is dedicated to providing a diverse range of evidence-based services – both for victims of abuse, and for those who have committed domestic and family violence.

We know that domestic and family violence occurs across all social, community and religious groups, in urban and regional settings, and all life stages. We endeavour to support as many people as possible with an inclusive and wide-reaching range of services, which include individual counselling; behavioural change and group programs; and educational programs and case support for those in the legal system.

Taking Responsibility – Men’s behaviour change program

Taking Responsibility is an 18-session men’s behaviour change group program for men who’ve committed domestic or family violence in the past, but who are willing to move forward and make positive changes in their behaviour.

Men’s Choice & Change

Men’s Choice & Change is a free program for male victims of domestic violence and abuse. We offer judgement-free support, professional advice, and strategies to help you seek safety and move forward with your life.

Domestic Violence Counselling

We provide confidential domestic violence counselling and support to women, men and children who have been victims of domestic and family violence. We'll help you work through trauma at your own pace, and support you in getting your life back on track after an extremely difficult time.

Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (Disability Royal Commission).

Men Maintaining Change

Men Maintaining Change is an ongoing support group for men who have committed domestic or family violence in the past, and have recently completed a men’s behaviour change program such as Taking Responsibility.

The group allows men to meet together in a safe, non-judgemental and supportive setting, and provides them with an opportunity to assist each other through the challenges of maintaining positive behaviour change.
