Brave people need giving hearts.
You can help people experiencing, escaping and being impacted by domestic and family violence by giving what's needed.
- 1 in 6 women and 1 in 16 men have experienced physical or sexual violence from a current or previous cohabitating partner1.
- 1 woman is killed every 9 days and 1 man is killed every 29 days by a partner1.
Recent research from the Australian Institute of Criminology2 shows domestic violence has increased in Australian households since the onset of COVID-19. The pandemic has also created extra barriers for people seeking to access support services.
Domestic and family violence doesn't discriminate. It affects all genders, sexual orientations, races, religions and social classes.
