DVConnect is a free and confidential Service that can help any person in Queensland who is feeling unsafe at home because of domestic, family or intimate partner violence. Through our Mensline we can also assist men wanting to make changes to their abusive behaviours.

We also help people who have experienced sexual assault or abuse at any point in their lives through our Sexual Assault Helpline.

In the last Financial Year:

  • DVConnect received 1 call for help every 5 minutes
  • We provided over 9,000 nights of safe accommodation for women and children
  • Calls to our Sexual Assault Helpline increased again this year
  • We received 10,000+ referrals to Mensline from the Police
  • DVConnect provided 29 nights of emergency accommodation to men
