Women’s shelters (sometimes called safe houses or refuges) 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 women’s shelters are confidential and not available to the public. It is a condition of entering most women’s shelters / safe houses / refuges that you understand you cannot reveal the location to ANYONE – including your family.
