Confidential advice, support and referrals
Domestic and family violence is a leading cause of homelessness among women and children. In 2020-21, almost 40 per cent of the people who accessed specialist homelessness services in NSW had experienced domestic abuse.
Aboriginal women living in rural and remote areas are also up to 45 times more likely to experience family violence than other Australian women living in rural and remote areas.
The NSW Government delivers a range of services, including housing assistance, to help women and children escape domestic and family violence.
