Family Violence

Family violence can occur in any relationship, including relationships where the parties no longer live together or have never lived together. It impacts everyone in the family, including children, whether or not the violence is directed at them.

Ending a relationship is a very difficult time for most people. When family violence is present this time can be very challenging and, in some cases, even dangerous. Accessing information about family violence, available supports from the community and legal responses to family violence may help you to stay safe.
