Domestic Violence can Happen to Anyone

Domestic and family violence takes many forms. It involves violent, abusive or intimidating behaviour carried out by a partner, carer or family member to control, dominate or instil fear. It doesn’t have to be physical abuse.

It can be emotional, psychological, financial, sexual or other types of abuse.

It can affect anyone in the community, regardless of gender, sexual identity, race, age, culture, ethnicity, religion, disability, economic status or location.

Anyone in immediate danger should call the police on Triple Zero (000).

For information, support and referrals, call the 24 hour Domestic Violence Line
on 1800 65 64 63.
