Family Harm

Family harm affects many people’s lives. It includes family violence, domestic violence, intimate partner violence, child abuse and neglect, and elder abuse. Abuse is never OK, and neither is feeling scared in your own home.

  • Receiving referrals from police, family harm services, CAB, NGOs , OT and self-referrals

  • Making a safety plan for at-risk women and children, since their safety is of paramount importance
