NEW Domestic Violence Resources

Domestic And Family Violence Video Resources (1)

Domestic and family violence is a serious problem in NSW. There has been an increase in domestic violence cases in recent years with Covid-19 stay-at-home orders resulting in more people exposed to the controlling and abusive behaviours from their partners.

Western Sydney Community Legal Centre (WSCLC) is dedicated to working to end domestic and family violence. Our catchment is home to many rich and diverse multicultural communities, and we recognise the importance of providing legal information in an accessible way.

We have recently updated our website and included free domestic violence resources that are designed to educate people to recognise domestic violence and seek help. The resources are:

  • Domestic Violence Help Poster which contains information on support available to people experiencing domestic and family violence.
  • Faces of Domestic Violence Poster which explains the various faces of domestic violence to educate people on recognizing the different types of abuse.
  • Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) poster with information about what an AVO is and how they are made.
  • Domestic Violence Facebook tiles which are designed to be shared on social media to raise awareness of different types of abuse.

All resources can be downloaded here.

Thank you to Cumberland Council and Multicultural NSW for contributions towards funding the translation of these resources into 10 separate languages. We welcome community workers, organisations and anyone interested in learning more about domestic violence to share and distribute the materials both online and within the community.
