Safe houses (sometimes called refuge or women’s shelters) provide safe and secure accommodation and specialist support for women and children escaping domestic and family violence.

In order to maintain security and safety, the location and details of safe houses are confidential and not available to the public, and it is a condition of entering most safe houses that you understand you cannot reveal the location to ANYONE – including your family.
