I wish to sincerely thank you and the entire DVConnect team for their past and present assistance during these past few years of family turmoil. Without such a wonderful service it would be that much harder for women and children.

  • Provide more emergency transport and accommodation to those escaping violence.
  • Provide more temporary accommodation for pets whose families have escaped domestic violence, until they set up a permanent home.
  • Provide more specialist counselling to those who have experienced domestic violence and/or sexual assault.
  • Educate the community about how we can help them, or someone they love, escape a domestically abusive relationship.
