Womensline 1800 811 811
DVConnect Womensline is the only state wide telephone service offering women who are experiencing domestic or family violence 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
We offer free, professional and non-judgemental telephone support to you, wherever you live in Queensland.
We can arrange practical assistance such as counselling, intervention, transport and emergency accommodation for Queensland women and their children who are in danger from a violent partner or family member.
Believe it or not DVConnect Womensline takes around 8000 calls every month from Queensland women who are in fear of or in immediate threat of danger from domestic or family violence, and on average we assist over 600 women and often more than 500 children to be moved to safety every month.
In addition and with help from the RSPCA Qld – we also assist between 25 and 30 pets to safety each month.
DVConnect is a not for profit community organisation funded almost entirely by the Department of Communities.
DVConnect works tirelessly to help women and children involved in domestic and family violence – but this is a whole of community concern a woman in Australia is more likely to be killed in her own home by an intimate partner than anywhere else or by anyone else
