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.
