Resources for Domestic and Family Violence

A Just Cause (a ministry of Australian Baptist Ministries) has launched a national campaign about Domestic and Family Violence entitled “No Place For Violence Here”. For more details and resources see noplaceforviolencehere.com 

Some churches have hosted workshops to assist their community in addressing this issue.

The NSW Government have a range of resources regarding Domestic and Family Violence on their webpage: http://www.domesticviolence.nsw.gov.au/

For information about the NSW Government “Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme” see their webpage: http://www.women.nsw.gov.au/violence_prevention/domestic-violence-disclosure-scheme

The NSW Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme helps people who may be at risk of domestic violence to find out if their current or former partner has a history of violent criminal offences and is currently being piloted in the Tamworth, Shoalhaven, Sutherland and St George regions.
