Family and Domestic Violence Resources

Many people may be facing an increased risk of family and domestic violence (FDV) during the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly during times of lockdown and other restrictions.  Emergency response services – such as the police and emergency departments are always available. 

Family and domestic violence support services are still available and are open, even during lockdown periods. Some services may provide support in different ways (i.e. by phone) to make sure they are meeting any restrictions or health requirements.  

In an emergency – if you or someone you know is in immediate danger – call the police on 000 now.  

If you need help or support these telephone numbers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  

If you are assisting someone who does not speak English, first call the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS) on 13 14 50. They can connect you with the service of your choice and interpret for you.
